Leisure Recreation and the Arts

Leisure is traditionally pursued mostly outside the home and by groups of like sex and age or marital status. In this sphere, people from different households interact and socialize. Local festivals often involve these groups in separate parallel activities. Mozos and mozas, as groups, interact explicitly in public (at dances, etc.), as their age dictates the activity of socializing with potential mates. Married women and married men, as groups, may play separate roles in the organization and execution of public festivities. These same groups socialize together at more ordinary times as well—early evenings, Sunday afternoons—in public space (in plazas or cafés) or at selected homes, where they might snack or drink wine or coffee together, play cards, or simply chat. Working men and women might take breaks in like-sex groups during their work day. Traditionally, families reunite in their homes by 10 p.m. for their evening meal, but families may also eat together at restaurants at midday or in the evening; this is an emerging form of nongendered public leisure.
