The season of giving!

As we take the decorations down and tidy away the remains of Christmas wrapping paper, thousands of households across Spain are preparing to do it all again in celebration of the Three Kings!

Now you are renting long term on the Costa del Sol, you may want to settle in by learning more about Spanish traditions and the Christmas period is a great way to do that. With all kinds of exciting events being held until January 7th, there is still plenty of time to get involved. Every year on the 5th January, the three wise men take part in a big parade through Marbella and San Pedro throwing sweets to all the children in the street who try and catch them all with upside down umbrellas! There is also a big selection of festive events for all ages such as shows, concerts, fun days and competitions, so it is a magical time to be in the area, even if there’s no snow!

If you find that you have lots of left over, non perishable food and some unwanted gifts, why not put those to good use and donate them to charity? Unfortunately there are many families in Spain who haven’t been able to celebrate Christmas with the food and presents they would have wanted and the Three Kings day will see many go without again. If you have gifts from Christmas which will be likely to end up in the back of the cupboard never to be seen again, donating them to charity could really make someone’s day and a donation of food could make a big difference to a family.

When out shopping in the sales this week, keep your favourite charities in mind as any donations made now could easily be distributed to those in need just in time for Three Kings Day. Getting involved with charity is also a great way to start settling in! If you don’t speak Spanish you could drop your donations into somewhere like Specsavers Opticas in Marbella and Fuengirola who are currently collecting on behalf of Red Cross and AECC (Spanish Cancer Care Association).

You can see all details of local events, things to do and be involved with, including charity work, in the local newspapers and local websites such as Marbella Family Fun.

Lend a Hand and Meet New People

If you are looking for a way to meet new people while learning a new skill and benefitting your community then Arboretum Marbella is the answer!

The aim of the charity is to create a more sustainable future by helping communities to take the steps which they need in order to reduce their carbon footprint, benefitting the environment.

There are many events which will be taking place throughout the year, which will allow you to be part of the cause. The “Lend a Hand” event is held on the second Saturday of each month, allowing you to go and help plant some new trees within a newly established forest. You are able to name your tree and then watch it grow.

Another event which may be of interest is the “Gratiferia” which takes place on the first Sunday of each month.  The purpose of the event is to take along any unwanted items which you may have lying around in the back of a cupboard and simply swap them with other peoples items or give them away, free of charge.

If you do not have anything to take along, don’t worry, the event is open to everyone and you are still more than welcome to go along and help yourself to any of the items on display. Free haircuts, fresh lemonade and a belly dancing show were also part of the last Gratiferia, making it a great day out for all.

If you would like to get involved, visit the Arboretum website, the charity are always looking for new volunteers and it is a great way to meet people while helping the local area.
