Fiesta de Los Reyes

Happy Christmas Eve from all the team at HolidayRentalontheWeb, we hope you have a fantastic holiday and enjoy all the festive cheer!

If you’re looking to escape the wintry weather and experience a different take on Christmas, why not book a flight to Spain after New Year to experience the Fiesta de Los Reyes? There are flights from under £60 return from many UK airports, what better way to wash away the post-Christmas blues?

In Spain, although Santa Claus is a popular character amongst children (and the bearer of a few small gifts on Christmas Eve), it’s the Three Kings, or Los Tres Reyes, that really count.

In the evening on 5th January, most Spanish towns and cities hold a parade or ‘Cabalgata´ especially for kids in which local men dress up as the three kings and ride about town on floats in a procession, scattering sweets to the crowds.

Most little ones can’t wait until the next morning, The Day of the Kings, or El Día de Los Reyes when they get to open the presents brought by the real three kings during the night. The 6th of January is a public holiday across the whole of Spain.

Enjoy Easter on the Costa del Sol

 If the cold and snow in England is getting you down, you can escape to the sunny Costa del Sol for a short-haul getaway with lovely beaches and interesting culture. 

Easter is a great time to visit, as this catholic country celebrates it in style! There are processions through the streets nearly every day throughout Semana Santa (holy week) and the whole community takes part. It’s also the time when many Spaniards from Madrid come down to the sea and there is a really great atmosphere as the area comes back to life after winter. The beach bars reopen and terraces and gardens are packed with families enjoying the warm sun and wonderful local food. 

You must visit one of the processions if you are visiting Spain during Easter as they are spectacular – if solumn affairs. Website Andalucia.com explains what you can expect to see: 

Holy week processions throughout Andalucia may differ according to the traditions of each city or town. However, there is a general order to most starting with a large cross, cruz de guía, that is followed by a group of participants bearing lanterns. The rest follow these leaders and are known as penitentes and nazarenos. The centre of attention, however, is the floats – usually two – with their respective images of Christ and the Virgin Mary. These massive, heavy floats are carried on the shoulders of numerous members of religious associations that care for them throughout the year. It is a particular honour to be able to help carry the floats and some will even do so barefoot as a sign of extreme penitence. 

You can find out more about Easter in Andalucia by visiting Andalucia.com. 

The Costa del Sol is a great place to combine sun, sea and traditional easter processions which will take place in the main towns of Malaga, Fuengirola, Marbella, San Pedro and Estepona as well as in many smaller areas. To find out what’s happening and when you can take a look at the what’s on section on the Sur in English website and the Marbella Town Hall website a week or so before Easter.
