Autumnal Tenerife – November’s chestnut fairs

Just as in the UK it’s conker time, November in Tenerife is a cosy and autumnal month with chestnuts roasting over many a live coal in braziers in the streets. The reason is a series of fairs in honour of San Andrés, who is, of course, the saint whose feast day in Scotland is on 30 November. Here in Tenerife, though, it’s celebrated on the 29th, though the fairs can take place several days either side of this.
