Everyone loves Christmas. It is a holiday to spend time together as families, giving away gifts and enjoying the good things in life. It is a celebration that really lights up the dark winter season and turns it into something to look forward to every year. Naturally, each time we do our very best to make Christmas special. We get the best food, buy the nicest presents and make sure to invite everyone round. But there is a way to make it even more special.
Celebrating Christmas in Spain is definitely something you have to experience. There are all the traditional things that you treasure, like giving gifts, Christmas trees and family dinners. But in Spain, Christmas is much more than shopping for gifts and two days of celebration. There is an official Christmas period, referred to as “Navidad”, which lasts from Christmas Eve (“Noche Buena” or “the Good Night”) until Epiphany on the 6 January. This period involves many traditional festivities, including an opportunity for the children to put their shoes on the window sill to receive gifts from ‘the Three Kings’ and a huge parade that welcomes these figures into the cities.
So, are you warming up to the idea of celebrating Christmas in Spain? Why not give yourself a present this year – the promise of a new holiday home. One where you can spend quality time with your friends and family during the holiday seasons. One where you can truly relax and take time for the things that matter. One that allows you to enjoy the good things in life.
