Christmas starts in Ayia Napa this year!


The first city on the island to start the winter holidays and light the Christmas Tree is Ayia Napa.

From Saturday, 18 November, you can take your photo with Santa’s sleigh at the harbor area and then go for a swim. That is if the weather does not decide to change and bring some rain and lower temperatures.

For the moment, I only found out the dates of the Christmas lights events for Larnaca and Paralimni, so if you know of more events like this, please leave the info in the comments so all those interested can have some fun!

And then, next weekend, the Christmas villages will open their gates!
