I'm wondering if use of illerations is common in Spanish or if it's only common in some countries/locals?

Often used in advertising - ie: Taco Tuesday, Wacky Wednesday, Finally Friday...

El cielo está enladrillado ¿quién lo desenladrillará? El desenladrillador que lo desenladrille buen desenladrillador será.

I have this one for you:

En Sarare no hay saraos,
n mucho menos sano en Sanare,
ni mucho caro en Carora
ni mucho bobo en Bobare.

Una novia que yo tuve
todas las efes tenia;
era flaca, fea y floja,
fregona, fragil y fria.

I hope you like it.

Alliteration is used in spanish-speaking countries just like it is used in the US. The following tongue-twisters are extremely widespread throughout spanish-speaking countries and are known by probably every Spanish native, just like the expression used here in the US: 'Sally sells seashells down by the seashore...'

Some examples are:

'Tres tristes tigres tragaban trigo en un trigal.' Which translates to 'Three sad tigers were swallowing wheat on a wheat field.'

'Poquito a poquito Paquito empaca poquitas copitas en pocos paquetes.' ---| 'Little by little, Paquito is packing some wine glasses in a few boxes.'

No, I am not sure about the use of alliteration in Spanish. There must be some very famous ones, and very beautiful usage examples, but I do not know of any. Very good question. It would take someone very much into the Spanish literary world to answer, and I hope someone does. Also, someone who lives in a total Spanish environment could give some examples.
