RESIDENTS and Councillors have denounced the lack of Christmas decorations in Porto Cristo, s’Illot and Son Macià in Mallorca, Spain.
In response to the wave of criticism voiced on social media from those residing in the municipally, Councillor Antònia Llodrà has made an official complaint to the City Council. She said: “there is almost no Christmas lighting in Porto Cristo”, adding that “it feels like we have gone back 25-years in history.”
Sebastià Nadal, the Councillor entrusted with the festive decorations, responded to the backlash at a plenary meeting, stating “I forgot about the lights of Porto Cristo because I thought someone else was in charge.” He laid blame on the configuration of the lights, which cannot be connected directly to street lamps.
When asked about the lack of lights of Son Macià, Mayor Miquel Oliver said that “the town will have more lights than ever before, but there has been a delay.”
