Christmas on the beach!

My article on Christmas in my part of Spain was recently published in Travel Thru History.

CHRISTMAS ON THE COSTA BLANCA
Torrevieja, Spain
by Darlene Foster

Christmas in Spain is a month long party consisting of numerous fiestas, parades, fireworks, brass bands, markets and food, lots of food. The first weekend in December is the official start of the Christmas season and it doesn´t take us long to get into the festive spirit. In our part of the Costa Blanca, it starts with a number of events celebrating Torrevieja´s Patronal Fiesta, dedicated to the patron saint of the city.

Enjoy the rest of the article here:

May your Christmas bring you much love, joy and peace!!

Merry Christmas , Darlene, from Rome. 🎄🙋

Merry Christmas back to you from Spain!! Enjoy.

What a colorful and joyful celebration in Spain. Gorgeous! Merry Christmas from unusually warm Switzerland!

Have a fabulous Swiss Christmas. Enjoy the mild weather.

That’s great, Darlene, congratulations on your article and your very interesting Christmas experience – quite a change from Canada, I imagine. Feliz Navidad!

Thanks so much. It is quite a change. Enjoy Christmas in Scotland!!

Somehow sand and Santa Claus seem incongruent to me even though we live twelve miles from the beach in Jacksonville, Florida right now where the temps are in the 80s F. (You’ll have to convert that to centigrade – sorry!)

Feliz Navidad!

That sounds nice and warm. 80 F is 26 C so it is warmer than here right now! I love how everyone goes to the beach on Christmas day here. It is so much fun. Enjoy tomorrow. >3

Merry Christmas and congratulations on your article!

Thanks Sue!! Merry Christmas back at you!

Darlene, what a wonderful article! I love the Christmas Belen – I don’t think I’ve seen that anywhere else. And is that paella in that huge skillet? Wow! Wishing you a wonderful Christmas and New Year. All the best, Terri & James

Thanks so much Terri & James. Yes, it is paella! And I got a paella pan for Christmas (a smaller version). The Belans are amazing. Hope you have a wonderful Christmas and a terrific New Year!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to you and your as well! Thanks for visiting. ❤

I´m sure Christmas is celebrated on beaches in many warm climates. It is just so new to me coming from a colder climate! hope 2016 brings you all the happiness you can handle!! ❤

Fascinating article, congratulations!

Thanks Marcia! Happy New Year!!

Don’t forget to join in the Cabalgata de Reyes on 5th January and to buy the Roscón de Reyes (special cake to celebrate Epiphany day): it comes with a surprise toy inside!!!. Enjoy! 🙂

I will make sure we get our own Roscon de Reyes this year! Happy New Year.

I love to see Santas on the beach, surrounded by palm trees 🙂

All the best for 2016, Darlene, from Andalucía.

One of the many joys of living in Spain! Happy New Year to you as well.
