From a face-to-face with the Three Wise Men to a walk among nymphs or a snack with Santa Claus. These are some of the perfect Christmas plans to enjoy with the family these days.

The return of Peppa Pig

The return to school of the most famous pig in the world was so successful during the months of October and November that the show The Adventures of Peppa Pig returns to the La Latina theatre in Madrid in January in different sessions (from the 2nd to the 21st). It will be the setting for the exploits of the endearing character and company through life-size puppets. It's an immersive experience in the form of an exciting camping trip in the woods, where Peppa Pig, her brother George and school friends arrive, including Pedro Pony, Suzy Sheep and Gerald Giraffe. With backpacks packed and Papa Pig driving the bus, friends will experience an outdoor adventure full of games, laughter and live music. Entertainment is the main objective of the proposal, of course, but it also encourages learning, creative play and problem solving, according to Proactiv Entertainment, the leading promoter in Spain in the production and organization of shows that presents this show.

lights, parades and ATTRACTIONS™

There's no Christmas without a theme park. Or rather, two: Warner and Amusements. The first features the shows Imagine the Story, in honor of Warner Bros.' 100th anniversary, and The Christmas Musical Live. When night falls, the Superstars of Christmas Parade allows you to enjoy the characters of the house with a visual and artistic display. They are also the ones who light the Christmas Tree in the evening. The culmination is the great parade on January 5th. The Amusement Park, meanwhile, debuts Winterland, an enchanted realm of ice and light inhabited by fantastic creatures. There is also room for the musical Noel in the Gran Teatro Auditorio, and for shows such as Christmas Welcome, offered by the inhabitants of the kingdom at the entrance, the parade La magia de las fairies or El bosque de la luz, a route through illuminated cherry trees. The visit of the Three Wise Men and Santa Claus is not missing. Learn more at www.parquewarner.com and www.parquedeatracciones.es

The largest royal entourage

A large royal entourage with more than 150 participants (from the Three Wise Men to pages, shepherds, sheep, cows and goats; or the largest Nativity scene in Spain), a market of crafts and flavours of yesteryear, the Christmas carols of the choral group of Los Seises de la Catedral de Toledo and a special Christmas menu to enjoy with the family. It is part of the offer of Puy du Fou, the theme park of the Castilian-La Mancha capital focused on the history of Spain and Latin America, available until January 4. In addition, in addition to the already classic (and multi-award-winning) shows such as The Last Song, A Pen and Sword, Allende the Oceanic Sea or The Wandering of the Centuries, a new one has been added, Dreams of a Rogue Angel, a story about the eve of the day on which Jesus was born told by a hesitant cherub, Carrillos, in charge of playing the trumpet in heaven.

Between geysers, fairies and elves

Two realms coexist in the Fountainhead of Dreams: the fairy kingdom and the elven realm. And both meet at the Alfonso XIII Royal Botanical Garden of the Complutense University of Madrid, where until January 6 there is time and space to enjoy a show on ice (Hontana: a trip to Nebula); a royal camp commanded by Melchior, Gaspar, and Balthazar; a monumental geyser; a fairy walk; a handicrafts and gastronomy market; a Christmas parade; an ice-skating rink and frozen gorges over which to float. New this year is Labyrinth of the Elves, which allows you to discover the secrets of these creatures by searching for the keys to the doors of the rooms needed to fill Christmas with joy.

There are many ways to deliver the letter to Santa Claus, but few at tea time in a luxury hotel like the Rosewood Villamagna in the capital. There, until December 23, children can snack with Santa Claus on weekends with Yule log, sweet and savory bites and, of course, roscón. The chosen space is the Flor y Nata bakery, decorated in a special way for these dates. Sooner or later, the little ones can give it their all at the skating rink set up in the gardens of this emblematic five-star hotel. Also noteworthy is the après-skate with raclette, fondue, oysters, apple strudel, champagne and mulled wine, among other delicacies, for the elderly. All in the alpine chalet decorated in the purest Swiss style with snowshoes, ski boards and wooden sleds. Learn more at www.rosewoodhotels.com
