red snowBenidorm is now on countdown to Christmas, following the official inauguration of the Christmas lights in the Town Hall square on Saturday evening. The weather, is also unfortunately following suit and has turned distinctly chilly since the weekend, with the cold arctic winds making their way down to us here.

fireworksAs always, no event here is complete without the compulsory fireworks and surprisingly, it was actually dark so you could see them for a change – lunchtime fireworks are often the norm here and the crowds were showered with red snow afterwards, to the delight of the children!


ice rinkThere are a selection of stalls and plenty of activities for the children, including rides and an outdoor ice rink, which will be open until January 7. It costs €5 for half an hour, which includes the hire of the skates and gloves are compulsory, which you can purchase for €1 from the kiosk.


For those here this week, both Wednesday and Friday are bank holidays here, but this shouldn’t affect too many things in Benidorm, being a tourist resort. Pop down to the Flash Hotel, where there is a Christmas fare in the area behind the terrace, including Santa’s Grotto for children.

Brits out walkingBut the cooler weather certainly hasn't deterred the hardy Brits, which are all too easy to spot. Whilst the Spaniards and locals are wrapped up they are still out in their shorts and flip flop... but if you are heading out, bring something warm, such as a fleece at least - you'll need it!

 

BOXING DAYFor a really speacial time, Benidorm Palace is putting on a Boxing Day spectacular, with a new Christmas menu. Then in addition to their regular show RUBI you get to see the spectacular ‘Walk Like a Man’ show returning – a tribute to Frankie Vali and the Four Seasons and a total sell out when they appeared here previously.

News Snippets

  • Cinema ban lifted +

    Saudi Arabia has lifted a 35 year ban on public cinemsa! All but one of the country's cinemas were shut down in the 1980's as many religious leaders believed Western films encouraged sin. Over the next decade around 300 licenses are expected to be granted, creating many 1000's of jobs.
  • Obesity capital +

    Britain is shamefully at the top of the leader board for obesity in both males and females. The report shows 26.9% of British men are obese compared to an average European rate of 22.9% - the least obese are in Portugal, at 19.8%. Women fare even worse, with 29.2% obese versus Austria at only 16.3%! Failure to exercise and an excessive drinking culture are thought to have contributed to these shocking statistics. Soon the Brits will be taking the crown off America...
  • Festive Pizza +

    From December 7, select Asda stores will be selling a Christmas dinner pizza! The toppings will include Brussel sprouts, roast potatoes and strips of roast chicken drizzled with cranberry sauce. They will be available in two sizes - 10 inch at £2.60 and 14 inch at £4... Ho Ho Ho.
  • You are what you eat! +

    The ingredients have to by law be listed on the labels, but do you really know the breakdown of what goes in your mouth? A 400gm jar of Nutella chocolate spread is 55% sugar and only 7% cocoa, meaning that a 20gm serving contains 3 teaspoons of sugar and only 2 hazelnuts. There is NO chicken in a chicken & mushroom pot noodle and 65% of Flora Light is water. But did you know that 99.8% of diet coke is water, with the remaining 0.2% colour, sweetner and flavouring.
  • Monarch goes bust +

    Monarch airlines have gone out of business after nearly 50 years of trading - very sad news. 2,750 staff are now without a job and 110,000 Monarch customers are abroad at the moment - but ALL will be flown back to the UK more or less at the same time of their original planned return.
  • Driving ban lifted +

    After a 60 year long ban, women will be allowed to drive in Saudi Arabia. A royal decree issued by King Salman should be in place by June 2018. The country was mocked after a picture appeared with an all female aircrew landing a jet - even though none would be allowed to drive a car!
