I’m surprised that the new county government moved the Mora Fiestas to July 20-22 this year.
Ever since I can remember the people in the Mora Valley have celebrated the feast days of St. James on July 25 and St. Ann on July 26.
It has been the tradition throughout the years to ride on horseback on St. James Day for the men, and horseback for the women on July 26, St. Ann’s day. I was always told since childhood that the reason for this was that St. James in his epistle talks about what Christianity is all about.
