On the beginning of December people starts to feel Christmas’s spirit. They decorate houses, streets, trees etc. Maderians love Christmas a lot. You can feel Christmas vibes everywhere. Specially during the night is really amazing with lights.
In Funchal there is Christmas market where you can try local products like bolo do caco or traditional soup. Also there is small stage where you can hear local artists. You should not miss this place.
For abroad people which come from “colder” countries it can be amazing view. Palms with lights, no snow, temperature at night is minimum 12 degrees. You can feel Christmas spirit in maderian style.
