    Nochebuena & Navidad (Christmas Eve and Christmas Day) – Christmas time in Spain is traditionally family-oriented. On Nochebuena after a celebration meal, families head to midnight mass, known as “Misa del Gallo.” In many parts of Tenerife, this mass is followed by a dance called the Baile del Niño. In the larger towns there are nativity scene competitions, holiday markets and on Christmas day, a free open-air concert featuring the TSO in Santa Cruz.

    Nochevieja (New Year’s Eve) After a traditional family dinner, young people typically hit the streets to ring in the New Year with fireworks displays and street parties.

    5th Jan The Three Kings visit towns and villages all across the island. In Los Cristianos they arrive initially by boat then ride camels thorough town to the Plaza, followed by bands, acrobats, fire-eaters and everyone from grandma to toddler in traditional Canarian costume. There is a live Nativity featuring a young mum and her new baby as well as all of the animals. In Santa Cruz, the Kings travel by helicopter and after landing at the football stadium, ride through the city, greet spectators and throw sweets to the children.

    6th Jan Kings Day, the question asked is, ‘Have you been good? If so, Melchior, Gaspar and Balthazar, will come bearing gifts, as today is when children all over Spain open their Christmas presents, if however the answer is ‘no’ naughty children will receive artificial coal, which is a sweet and edible cinder toffee.

    17th Fiesta de San Antonio Abad the patron saint of Arona is an occasion for the Canarian culture to really shine with various rural activities, performing folk groups, traditional dance, music and dress, livestock and crafts. It is definitely worth checking out. The fiesta is also in Los Silos, Los Realejos and Buenavista, never on the same day so if you miss one you have the chance to catch it elsewhere.

    20th The Festival of San Sebastián starts in Adeje town then a procession continues towards the sea at La Caleta. Farmers and herdsmen profess a special devotion to the saint, with the result that the procession is led by numerous horsemen, followed by shepherds with their flocks, donkeys, cows and goats. When they reach the beach, they enter the sea to be blessed either willingly or with a little help! All the while being watched by San Sebastián.

    Feliz Navidad y próspero año nuevo

    The live nativity is usually on 5th January so if I am down there for Tres Reyes I will try but I am rubbish at taking photos in the dark. This one from Linda is of the crib that is in the square leading up to Kings.
