The month of December traditionally is the month of Christmas. It is about spending time with family and relatives, Christmas markets, gifts, and lots of food. The days are short and nights are long, in many European countries this time of year is known as the dark days before Christmas. Fortunately, the people living in the Costa Blanca mostly enjoy sunny weather. That makes it a very special way to celebrate Christmas.
Many of the local towns organize Christmas markets in the Costa Blanca. They bring their visitors into the true Christmas spirit. In this blog, you can read about some of them, and if a link is provided you find the directions on how to get there.
