The large shopping centre La Cañada on the outskirts of Marbella has put up its Christmas tree this week and whilst the lights won’t go for a few weeks you can see the preparations are being made. The first festive event announcement was sent out last week, the annual Concordia gala where the great and the good of Marbella society and further afield gather to raise money for this local Aids charity and start the Christmas period with a glittering event on the 5th December.
You might not think of the Costa del Sol as the place for a Christmas get away, but it’s actually a great option for people who are a little jaded by the crazy commercialisation of the holiday in the UK and elsewhere. Here in Spain it’s a more low-key event, with most decorations not going up until 1st December, lovely little Christmas fairs, markets and concerts, not to mention opportunities to stroll down by the sea to walk off that Christmas lunch. There are lots of restaurants serving the traditional British Christmas dinner and if you have a holiday rental property on the Costa del Sol you can buy everything you need from supermarkets such as Iceland, or even take a day trip to Gibraltar and stock up in Morrisons and see the monkeys!
Christmas Eve is celebrated more than Christmas Day by the Spanish and the big party is the Three Kings on the 6th January when the Kings come to town in a big procession to bring the kids their presents. It’s lots of fun!
