The popular phrase “Day 4 that Goes” makes reference to the eve of the Celebrations of Moors and Christians of Villena.

Until the Sixties, the celebrations began day 5 of September in the morning with the Celebration of the Pasodoble, and was in that decade when pregón of celebrations was added. For that reason, day 9, after dismissing the Virgin in the morning and to celebrate the entrance of New Captains and Lieutenants; and the interchange of bands, in the evening, people shelp popularly “day 4 that outside”, thus expressing its desire of which the celebrations began that same day again, that is to say, that did not finish.

They opposed therefore the joy of day 4, that is to say, the eve of the celebrations, to the sadness of day 9, since this last one was for the festeros the saddest day of the year. In the Sixties one began to celebrate the concert of day 4, and in 1970, just created Together Power station of Celebrations it instituted denominated then “Cena Homenaje to the Woman”, so that day 4 thus became the first day of the Celebrations.

After dinner and the concert, the fireworks castle went off from the station. The popular phrase served to denominate the monthly bulletin that began to publish the Central Meeting from its creation in 1971.
