It's Christmas Time, There's No Need To Be Afraid
"It's Christmas time, there's no need to be
At Christmas time, we let in light and we banish
And in our world of plenty we can spread a smile of
Throw your arms around the world at Christmas
"But say a prayer, Pray for the other ones
At Christmas time it's hard, but when you're having
There's a world outside your window
And it's a world of dread and fear
Where the only water flowing
Is the bitter sting of tears
And the Christmas bells that ring
There are the clanging chimes of doom."
Could a Christmas song be anymore apt, for what 2020 has thrown
up for just about everyone across the world this year?
We don't think so!
A popular festive tune that has carried weight and meaning for
many years since its original release in 1984, the 'Band Aid'
Christmas hit rings true more than ever this year with the global
pandemic's restrictions taking centre stage throughout.
As a result, a lack of time and a whole lot of sacrifice has
been made when it came to our loved ones, we simply had to do what
was needed to ensure we were all healthy and our countries got a
grip on a major worldwide issue.
As we dive into the festive season with gifts galore, it's
certainly going to be a time that feels a whole lot different from
the norm. However, that isn't to say that Christmas won't once
again be the main attraction this December.
The Algarve provides traditional and alternative thoughts, it is
an ideal festive destination for all to enjoy, especially in the
luxury regions of Quinta Do Lago, Vale Do Lobo and Vilamoura - it
certainly takes the sting out of the freezing cold weather that
Britain is associated with this month…
With the majority of the Portuguese population being Catholic,
it won't be unusual to hear traditional caroling, brightly
decorated Christmas trees, a nativity scene and Santa Claus (Pai
Natal) firmly in town spreading the festive traditions, usually
beginning on the popular day of Christmas Eve.
'Christmas Madeiro', 'Christmas Feast of the Immaculate
Conception' are always huge calendar events that locals look
forward to each and every year - just this year will have the
difference of socially distanced, of course.
No matter where you reside, Christmas is always a time of joy
with your family and friends. We all love to treat our loved ones
and what better way to do so with a luxury experience you can share
as a group or maybe even a romantic couple…
As we approach 2021 and a return to normality later in the new
year ahead, you can bet that the travel industry will prove a big
hit with many looking to get away and make up for lost time with a
well deserved break away.
