The important dates during Christmas in Spain
We start by identifying the main holidays for the Christmas holidays in Spain. The day which gets everything started is the 22nd of December, when schools close their doors, the children head home and start their holidays and, for the older ones, there is a unique event which brings much joy: the National Christmas lottery draw, in which millions of euros can be won. Two days later, it’s time for Christmas Eve, the dinner which precedes Christmas Day and brings together thousands of families around a table filled with food and sweet treats until the early hours of the morning. On the following day, once everyone has recovered from the night before, it’s time for Christmas Day. This eagerly awaited national holiday once again brings together loved ones for a full meal where relationships are celebrated and those who have passed are remembered. The 26th of December, the icing on the cake of holidays in Mallorca and the Mediterranean territories of Spain, celebrates Saint Steven, or as it’s better known, the second day of Christmas, which is also a public holiday, and thousands of people use it as an excuse to get together.
