Christmas in Andorra

Andorra officially the Principality of Andorra also called the Principality of the Valleys of Andorra, is a landlocked microstate in Southwestern Europe, located in the eastern Pyrenees mountains and bordered by Spain and France. It is the sixth smallest nation in Europe, having an area of 468 km2 (181 sq mi) and an estimated population of 85,000 in 2012. Its capital, Andorra la Vella, is the highest capital city in Europe. The official language is Catalan, although Spanish, Portuguese, and French are also commonly spoken.

Christmas is celebrated all around the world. Each country has different customs and traditions. Different countries celebrate in their own way including different dates, food, drinks which lead to a variety of diverse Christmas traditions around the World.

Christmas is a special time of year for most people in the UK however normally a white Christmas is just a fond memory rather than a reality when you spend the festive period at home. If you’d like to bring back some of those memories and experience Christmas in a winter wonderland full of snow then you should think about coming on a ski holiday to make your holidays season that extra bit special!

Christmas in Andorra

The Christmas decorations are up throughout Andorra and will remain so until well into the New Year, like most ski resorts. Of course nature adds its own decoration with pine trees and snow giving a Christmassy look right up until after Easter.

For those looking for the more traditional meaning of Christmas, La Massana usually has a church service in English on Christmas Eve. Number One has reported on what has happened in previous years:-

The English Speaking Church held a Carol service in the Church in La Massana. The building is a Catholic Church but the service was sort of Anglican, but several different people took part, including the local catholic priest.

We wish all readers Merry Christmas 2013 & Prosperous New Year !!!
