Málaga always puts on a good show at Christmas.
The display of Christmas lights was so good last year that I wondered how they could follow it. I needn’t have worried.
This year, we’ve been treated to thousands of tiny twinkling lights, with moons and stars which form a net across the pedestrianised shopping street, Calle Marqués de Larios.
Once again they are AMAZING!
It’s an absolute joy to join the crowds of Christmas shoppers, who collectively gasp, clap and cheer when the lights are switched on at 6.30pm, each evening!
We’ve had such mild weather recently it’s easy to be fooled by the blue skies and warm sunshine, but yes, it really IS Christmas Eve.
You can still get in the Christmas mood by visiting the outdoor skating rink in front of El Corte Ingles store, or go to see one of the sixty-seven (yes, 67!) Bélens (crib and Nativity scenes) around the city – of which one of the best is at the Town Hall.
Malaga’s Christmas lights shine from 6.30pm – 2am daily, until 6th January 2015.
So, I’d like to take this opportunity to say a great big THANK YOU for following my blog, and my Christmas wish for you is that love, hope and happiness fill your hearts this holiday season, and for all your dreams and wishes to have wings.
¡Feliz Navidad! MERRY CHRISTMAS, folks!
