Christmas in Gran Canaria is very special and a lot of people come every year. Actually, if you are thinking about coming for Christmas holidays in the sun, you might like to book now because a lot of the hotels in Gran Canaria get very full over Christmas and that’s when the prices go up!
The Christmas traditions in Gran Canaria are very enjoyable and you can see Canarian cribs in the town squares and houses and hear carols being sung. The main streets are decorated with Christmas lights and on January 5th, which is Epiphany, you can see the Procession of the Three Kings. This is also called Dia del Reyes and it’s when the Canarian children get their presents.
There are traditional handicraft fairs and open air concerts in December in Gran Canaria which are great to watch because the weather is warm and it’s nice to enjoy open air activities in the middle of the winter.
