1. It’s raining? Make a wish!
It rains in Valencia like 5 days each year. Not kidding. Our days are always sunny and in winter it’s cold but you still see the sun every day. Valencians say ‘make a wish’ when it’s raining because it never does! And if one day it rains, it will stop in less than 20 minutes.
