  • 23+ years ago one of the delights of our first festive season in Tenerife was the lack of commercialization. In the whole of Los Cristianos, there were two shops selling decorations, and the Spanish treats and “festive fayre” didn’t appear in the shops until well into December. It was nice to opt out of the commercialization at the time, although I have mixed feelings about it now.
