The month of December brings the magic of Christmas. Shops adorn their windows, the city council installs lights in the center of the city and activities take place in the street aimed especially at children. We are going to know the events that mark the Christmas season in Dénia.
Next you have an index with all the points that we are going to deal with.
Shopping: La Nit de la Llum
It is an important commercial action to promote purchases in local shops in the city in the days before Christmas. The Nit de la Llum (the Night of Light in Spanish), is a night in which Dénia is filled with candles and shops open until midnight offering discounts and offers to buyers.
The activity begins with Christmas carols in the Plaza del Ayuntamiento by the city schools, and throughout the night, different local groups and associations liven up the shopping with more Christmas carols and popular songs in the busiest places. In addition, more types of animation are organized in the streets. The goal is for people to shop at local businesses and help promote them. A very pleasant atmosphere is generated and it is a consolidated initiative that has been repeated for several years.
Days before Christmas Eve, Dénia receives a visit from Santa Claus and his helpers. Santa Claus arrives and is accompanied by the Calle Marques de Campo towards the basement of the Town Hall, where the boys and girls of the city have the opportunity to ask for your gifts and to take a picture with him.
In this activity, the council's party committee assembles bouncy castles and distributes chocolate and sweets for a snack.
New Year's Eve parties
Locals in the city offer a multitude of proposals to celebrate New Year's Eve with dinner, party favors and after-party. And for a few years, the municipal initiative has been added to that proposal, which organizes a party in Glorieta with orchestra or DJ's.
Many people who opt for this possibility since, being free, it becomes suitable for all budgets.
The Royal Postmen and the Magi
Royal Postmen usually visit the city on the Saturday before the Kings Parade: they go through the center with music that announces their arrival and they receive the boys and girls in the basement of the Town Hall throughout the afternoon, where they collect their letters.
