Christmas Lights

Even in a recession, Madrid doesn't hold back on decking itself out in lights during the Christmas season.


All along Gran Via, and down all the streets leading toward Puerta Del Sol, bright lights amaze and excite.

Inside La Plaza Mayor, lights shine down on the Christmas market, where vendors hawk gaudy Christmas decorations made in China, the crowds press close together and the smells of roasted nuts waft over everything.

Not to be left out, our house has gotten into the Christmas spirit with decorations and a tree! 'Tis the season!
