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

  • End of the road +

    The last Ford Mondeo is expected to roll off the production line by 2020. The popular family car was launched in 1993 and was the epitome of the middle classes - with nearly 130K sold in the first year. Last year only 55K were sold across the whole of Europe hence the decision to stop production. But Ford takes the top slot for the UK's best selling car - with the Fiesta and in 4th place, the Focus model.
  • DIY closures +

    DIY store Homebase is set to close approximately 60 stores over the next few weeks, threatening more than 1,000 jobs. The chain currently has 250 UK stores, employing around 12,000 staff.
  • Chewing gum +

    A estimated £60 million a year is spent cleaning chewing gum off pavements - a startling amount. More than 100,000 tons are consumed every year, but many have no idea that it contains plastic. Now supermarket chain Iceland have developed a a new product called 'Simply Gum' - which is made from a sap called chicle, extracted from a tree native to Central America.
  • Powder ban +

    The Government are considering restricting air passengers on carrying powders in hand luggage under a new security clampdown. Baby powder, cosmetics and coffee may be limited to no more than 12 ounces. Australia, New Zealand and America have already introduced the restrictions.
  • UK drink crisis +

    A shortage of food grade CO2 has led to some supermarkets rationing sales of fizzy drinks, beer and cider. Even bakery chain Warburtons has been forced to stop making crumpets and pubs across the the UK have run out of several brands of draught beer and cider... not good during the World Cup!
  • More store closures +

    The face of the UK High Street is changing in the wake of the economic slowdown. M&S, House of Fraser, Carpetright, Mothercare and New Look are all closing branches. Now John Lewis have announced that 5 Waitrose food stores are set to close - affecting more than 200 staff. Co-Op will take over four of the locations - 2 in Manchester, 1 in London and 1 in Birmingham.
