The town divides in two with huge, tackily adorned floats which wait by each church that slowly come to light throughout the evening. The fireworks start before it even gets dark with each side taking turns of roughly an hour each, launching them over the crowd gathered in the square. Spend the night there and you will be lucky not to get hit but that's part of the fun. Stay with a local and you will be fed like a king and have somewhere to hide if the home-made fireworks get too much. Let the family celebrate Christmas in peace and spend the following day relaxing and recuperating on one of the nearby beaches.
