Each year in early December, Alfaz’s Norwegian colony has brought the first taste of Christmas.
Christmas lights are switched on in Calle Teniente in the Old Town with a simple and moving ceremony where Julenissen – Father Christmas – is the guest of honour, wishing the local population Merry Christmas and ensuring that Alfaz gets the coming year off to a good start.
This year, with restrictions on large gatherings imposed by coronavirus regulations, Siri Lund from the Julegate Noruega committee sent a message of hope and optimism for the approaching fiestas.
Sharing her Christmas greetings, Alfaz’s mayor Vicente Arques said that despite the Covid-19 pandemic, Norway’s Christmas had arrived as always in Calle Teniente Segui.
“God Jul!!” Arques declared.
