Is October too early to be talking about Christmas? Well it seems not according to our website statistics. Many people are already searching for information on Christmas in Spain and New Year's in Spain.

This will be our fifth Christmas in Spain and as you'll read in our first article, Christmas seems to go on forever here, especially if you celebrate the 25th of December and the 6th of January, which is the more important of the two in Spain.

With this much notice I'll have no excuse for leaving buying Christmas present to the last minute now!!

Anyway, on with today's articles. Remember that you can also submit your own articles for publication in the newsletter and on the website.
