What is it about St. Peter and St. Paul?

Bet you haven't even noticed. Check it out: any midges around? Probably not, as San Pedro (Peter to his mates) had his Day on the 29th, last Wednesday. We told you about it here. His friend San Pablo had his Day that day, too. Indeed the Day in Spain is known as San Pedro y San Pablo - very together, they are. Between them, they manage to get rid of the midges year after year. We should be grateful, and probably are once we stop itching a couple of days later. We're not very up on our Saints here, admittedly, but we'd love to hear from you, Dear Reader, if you know why their Day is the same. There must be some biblical connection, we're guessing. (And, of course, this is why San Pablo de Buceite has its feria this weekend - anyone know why San Pedro de Alcántara doesn't?)
