Father Christmas Parade, Puerto del Carmen, 24th December 2010

Santas in Puerto del Carmen The island of Lanzarote will be trying to break a Guinness World Record in Puerto del Carmen on Christmas Eve.

We want everyone to dress in a Santa suit and come along to the Avenida de Las Playas in Puerto del Carmen for 17:30, it’s going to take an awful lot of Santas but the aim is to have a line of people holding hands along the ocean front from the San Antonio Hotel to the Los Fariones Hotel!

Apart from the record attempt there will be a parade between 18:00 – 20:00 with Father Christmas on his horse drawn sleigh and a batucada band. There will be sweets to give out for the children and prizes for the hunkiest Mr Santa Claus, the sexiest Mrs Santa Claus and the best dressed child.

Pandora Jewellery in Lanzarote

A year ago we were introduced to Pandora jewellery by our family in the UK.

MELVI-E Shop Lanzarote I’d always liked silver jewellery and loved the idea that Pandora was a modern version of the charm bracelet. Once hooked we found a Pandora outlet on Calle Real in Arrecife and we bought our daughter the bracelet chain together with a clip and a charm or two. We’d spotted another shop stocking Pandora in Lanzarote recently and with Christmas and birthdays approaching we walked into MELVI-E on the Avenida Central in Tías.

When we entered the jewellery shop we explained that we were looking for a new Pandora charm and Pedro set out four huge trays in front of us, we were astonished  read more »

Santa Goes Diving In Lanzarote

Yesterday we went to the 6th edition of the Concentración de Papá Noeles at Playa Chica in Puerto del Carmen. Diving Reindeer There were a number of Lanzarote dive schools participating, we estimated around 70 divers took part all wearing Father Christmas outfits of some kind.

The scuba divers got their first chance to have a look at the reindeer that would be hidden in the sea when they checked in at registration.

No help was given, he was going to be hidden somewhere out in the bay no deeper than 25 metres. Playa Chica is a very popular spot for diving in Lanzarote, all of the locals know this area like the back of their hand and there is great visibility in the water here.

Once kitted up it was time for some group photos……..

Last Posting Date For Christmas Delivery Spain / UK

The last posting dates for delivery in time for Christmas are approaching for sending cards and parcels to friends and family abroad.

Correos Postbox The last posting date for airmail as issued by the Royal Mail from UK to Spain is Monday 13th December, there is nothing confirming the date for a delivery in the opposite direction from the Spanish postal service Correos but I would suggest it is safe to assume the same.

The Spanish postal company Correos have launched a facility to produce your own personalised Christmas cards online through their virtual post office. You can select a card or make your own design, add your text and send to any destination in the world, without having to print, place in an envelope and post. The cards are then printed in high quality A4 fold and dispatched, you can pay with credit card or Paypal, it costs €3 per card to send internationally or €2 within Spain.

There are normally special post boxes organised by Correos for children to send their letters to the Los Reyes Magos, look for them between the 15th and 30th of December.

If you are planning to send post and parcels to the UK for the first time, here are some tips to help you:  read more »
