A magical Christmas in Dénia


Christmas comes to Dénia and with it a wave of events and celebrations that fill the town’s streets. The usual carols and Christmas decorations are combined with medieval markets, charity workshops, storytelling, children’s workshops and many other activities, all helping to give December that magical touch.

Students at TLCdénia are immersed this month in Christmas traditions and customs, making them feel a part of the community.

The first weekend in December sees a medieval market take place in Dénia’s historical district. Vibrant colours and tastes of old transport our foreign students through the centuries where they can watch artisans hard at work demonstrating their traditional crafts.

The month continues with more cultural events such as those based on the local cuisine. More than 15 restaurants from the town prepare ‘arroz a banda’ dishes (rice in fish broth) to celebrate the thirtieth anniversary of Dénia’s International ‘Arroz a Banda’ Competition. TLCdénia students and teachers alike take great pleasure in attending the tasting sessions.

Another event worthy of our students’ interest is the ‘Night of Light’, where for one night only Dénia is illuminated by thousands of candles lining the streets and where choir-sung carols echo around the town. The local shops offer special discounts, gifts and surprises giving all the opportunity to do their Christmas shopping in a very special ambiance.

But of course this is only the beginning as Santa visits Dénia and shows, concerts, plays and workshops take place throughout the month. The icing on the cake however has to be the end of year celebrations, where on New Year’s Eve the town centre comes alive with live music and an atmosphere that never fails to impress our students (Calendario navideño 2013 Dénia).

    I hаvе been surfing onlіne more than 2 hоurs today,
    yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me.
    In my opinion, if аll web owners and bloggers made gοod content as you did, the internet will be a lot
    more useful than ever before.
