Christmas celebrations organised by local town halls include Father Christmas ‘pasacalles’ or street parades, as well as Zambombas, an Andalusian celebration with flamenco Christmas carols sung to the accompaniment of traditional instruments.Christmas lights have become a spectacular show, with more being added every year. The biggest spectacle is in Málaga, however, where the whole of the central pedestrian area Calle Larios is festooned with stunning decorations, with a breathtaking light and sound show that takes place at 7, 8:30 and 10 pm every evening and is well worth the trip to see it.
