Locals on Minorca as well as Majorca and Ibiza look forward to January and February in part because vast swaths of the islands bloom into blankets of snowy white, due to the blossoms of their many almond tree plantations. Almonds (ametlles in Catalan, almendras in Spanish) have been an important part of Minorca's life and culture at least since the 19th century - not just in cuisine (jams, pudding, dried nuts, and various dishes) but also artisanally in a range of products, especially those relating to beauty, hygiene, and skin care. You might say Minorcans are nuts about almonds.
