Christmas is just around the corner


Towards the end of November one begins to see the first signs of Christmas appear: the streets start to get invaded by lights and shop windows claiming your attention insistently. All of Madrid dresses up to greet Christmas, with the pinnacle being in the month of December and the nativity scene exhibitions, the great Christmas Fair in the Plaza Mayor, the Santa Claus toys climbing up the windows of the buildings and light garlands in the windows of people’s homes. The people from Madrid and its visitors get prepared for the unavoidable rendezvous on the 31st of December in the Puerta del Sol to eat the traditional twelve grapes, one for every last chime of the year!
