It is high time to count the days down
Only one month left before Christmas! The time of preparation for Navidad has already started because Christmas decorations as well as Advent calendars have appeared in supermarkets. Shop displays are bombarding us with various ideas of the presents for our families and friends. What is more, shopping centres are offering clothes with Christmas motifs, such as Christmas trees, Christmas balls, bears, reindeers and elves. Not only do we observe changes in the way we dress up, but also in the way streets look like. The windows have been decorated with Christmas colourful lamps and the doors have been graced with garlands made of cones, bunches of spruces and Christmas balls. While strolling along the street, raise your head to see various decorations spread between buildings. Certainly, we can feel now the Christmas atmosphere and start counting the days to Christmas down.
Days seem to be dark, foggy, clouded and windy in many European cities, but it does not to appeal to Malaga. The weather in the south of Spain is good, although autumn is here. It encourages us to go for a long walk and spend some nice time in the open air. Besides higher temperatures outside, Malaga attracts many tourists at the turn of November and December because of gorgeous Christmas decorations.The capital of Costa del Sol is considered to be one of the cities with the most beautiful Christmas illuminations. Isn`t the view of Christmas lamps with palm trees in the background positively surprising?
