Although Christmas celebration is somehow universal, you do get the small and bigger differences per country or culture. Christmas in Portugal, is mainly a time to spend with family. Although Christmas trees have been more popular since the 70’s, the main decoration still is the “presépio”, the nativity scenes, that each home will have, and that towns will display in larger sizes and sometimes even with real people and animals playing out the roles. The Portuguese love to go and visit them. You will witness plenty of light decoration during December in the cities too, and although palm trees with Christmas lights might not give you the same feeling, it does get you into a winter atmosphere. Plenty of Christmas trees though during Christmas in Portugal!
Whichever day of the month, there is most probably some market somewhere in the Algarve that you can stroll through and breathe in the atmosphere with all your senses. The most common Algarve market is the daily (exept Sunday) fresh vegetable, fruit and fish markets, most towns and villages in the Algarve have one, and are generally located in the center. The best fish you will find early in the mornings! Mind you, no fish on Monday as the fishermen do not fish on Sunday!
