The illusion, the magic, the lights… Christmas is a time to dream and to meet again with sensations that perhaps had fallen asleep during the year, sensations of harmony, solidarity, hope, love… Living the Christmas with all the intensity is what we wish for everyone from Malgrat de Mar! And that is why we have turned to the organization of Workshops, Concerts, Plays and many other activities that have a special attention to the little ones!
One of the most traditional expressions of Christmas is food, and that is why we have decided to organize different workshops to learn how to make typical Christmas meals in Malgrat. You can learn how to make chocolate truffles and turró de Jjijona at the Workshop that is organized at the Peixateries Velles on the 21st from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. At the same time and place, but on the 23rd, we will make a Workshop of galets for the broth, a traditional Christmas day meal. And on the 27th, especially dedicated to children, there will be the workshop of mini pizzas in the form of a star, a great opportunity to introduce the little ones in the world of cooking!
The feelings of solidarity are easily activated at Christmas, and in Malgrat different associations will organize activities in which they try to deliver a little Christmas happiness to those who need it. The Associació Solidària Colors organizes on the 22nd, a solidarity bowl of the Tió de Navidad from 12 noon at the Peixateries Velles. On January 2, the Department of Sports organizes a collection of solidarity toys for the benefit of the Creu Roja from 10 am to 1 pm in the Municipal Pavilion of Avinguda Tarragona.
If you like music, in Malgrat you can count on different musical events linked to Christmas parties. On the 20th, the Atzavara, Contrapunt and Sibemoll Corals organize a Christmas Concert for the benefit of Cáritas at 8:00 p.m. in the Church of San Nicolás. Day 21 is the turn of the Aula de Música Contrapunt that will make a Christmas Concert with the participation of all the choral and instrumental groups of the center at 7:30 p.m. at the Cultural Center. And on 24 at 11h, you can enjoy an activity with music in the stores that will take place in different shops in the town.
But if you like crafts, in Malgrat, for Christmas, we will not forget about you. You have a great option on the 30th: Make a postcard with colored sand (Arenart) at 10:30 in the Parc de Can Campassol. For children, Malgrat organizes a children’s workshop of crafts and chocolate on January 3 at 18h in the Família Maristany square, and another children’s craft workshop on January 4 at 11am in the Riera de Sant Genís of Palafolls.
And also for the children, we have prepared a very funny surprise: the Little Train, which will walk the children who want it on different streets of the center on December 27 and 30 from 18h. Likewise, Malgrat organizes on the 22nd some giant wooden Games, the Oci Game Party on the 28th at 10h in the Municipal Pavilion of the Avinguda de Tarragona, the Video Game Party on the 27th at 10h in the Civic Center, and the Home dels Nassos (Nose Man) on the 31st at 11am in the Church Square. Still thinking of all the children, remember that the royal pages will collect letters for the Magic Kings on the 22 and 24 at 11am, and that their Majesties of the Orient will arrive on January 5 at 18h, and will pass through the Municipal Pavilion of the Avinguda de Tarragona to the Can Campassol Park.
Finally, in Malgrat, as in many other Catalan towns, Els Pastorets are performed, an endearing theatrical performance of the birth of Jesus, with a great role of the shepherds. This year 2019, you can enjoy Els Pastorets, the 22nd and 29th at the Cultural Center, from 18h.
You have no excuse anymore, come and live moments of magic and excitement with Christmas in Malgrat de Mar!
