As an island, Mallorca is fairly laid back about the festive season until the very last minute. Christmas lights usually appear some time during December in most towns and villages with Palma leading the way. Today, I noticed a huge crowd of onlookers pointing excitedly up at several strings of lights being arranged across Plaza Mayor.
Suddenly Christmas has become a reality with chestnut vendors appearing on every street in the capital! When lights will arrive in our sleepy Soller valley – if at all, depending on budget cuts – is anybody’s guess, but whatever the weather, we’ll all have a jolly festive time: that’s a given.
