Five Must Does in Madrid this Christmas

Decorate your home - Build your own Madrilenian nativity scene.
First go to plaza Mayor to buy figurines. The essential figurines are: Mary, Joseph, baby Jesus, cow and donkey, angel, some shepherds and the three wise men.
A tip: do not buy the caganet it is not a local figurine.
Another tip: While in plaza Mayor take advantage to have a Christmas chocolate con churros at Chocolatería San Gines.
Then go to your nearby park and pick some moss, stones, twigs, etc.
Find a good spot in your house far from pets. Do not forget to build up a river with kitchen foil and to add some lighting that will make the joy of the little ones.
Visit a museum but make sure you buy your tickets online beforehand.
Our choice :
- Clara Peeters at Museo del Prado from 25th October 2016 to 19th February 2017.
- Renoir at Thyssen Bornemisza Museum from 18th October 2016 to 22th January 2017.
- Robert Doisneau – la Belleza de lo Cotidiano at Fundación Canal from 6th October 2016to 8th January 2017.

Treat your belly and go for nice healthy food.
Our choice:
- Bump and Green
- Hermosos y Malditos
- Nubel
- La Pagoda
- Amazónico

Treat your look. Since you are not going to start a diet go for a facial at Skininc, a massage at Assari or a walk at the Retiro Park.

Have crazy amusement. Go for a show with dinner to the newly revamped Florida Retiro, depending on the day you can choose a musical show or jazz music, and after 01:30 a.m. lively disco and dancing.

And a final suggestion outside the list: stay at home, relax and watch a nice TV series with a glass of Spanish wine avoiding the masses.

Best wishes to all of you from My Little Madrid!!
