I was listening to the Latin music station on XM last night, and between songs the host came on and spoke in Spanish (as he always does). I know quite a bit of Spanish, but not nearly enough to keep up with a speaker speaking in his normal voice. Basically I can pick up random words here and there.
Which is why I was a little taken aback when I caught the words “enanos verdes,” which means “little green dwarfs.” And yes, I’m absolutely sure he said “enanos verdes”; he chuckled a little after he said it.
Unfortunately, I can give you no more context than that. I suspected there was some kind of holiday afoot whose mythos involves enanos verdes, just like the US holiday Christmas involves elves. But that’s just a guess.
Can anyone help me out here? Is August 11th a holiday of some kind in some Spanish-speaking place, and green dwarfs somehow factor into it?
