Boas Festas! Also known as Happy Holidays.
A Guest Post for this week.
Author’s note: Thank you to everyone who took the time to comment on my last post, Wrapping up Our Portugal Journey. I am humbled by your kind words and look forward to getting back to writing my weekly posts in January.
I’m taking a little break from writing for a few weeks to do some traveling, visit with family, spend some time with friends, and to recharge my creative batteries. Paul and I are looking forward to 2023 and sharing more of our experiences, challenges, and adventures with you on Our Portugal Journey. My first post for the New Year will arrive in your email inbox on January 5, 2023. In the meantime, I’ve selected some content for you from some of my favorite fellow writers and vloggers whose work I respect. I hope you’ll enjoy the work of these talented people during my break.
This week I have selected a post from Nancy Whiteman who pens Expat in Portugal. Last December (2021) was the first Christmas in Portugal for Nancy and her wife, Denise. And despite Covid still showing its prevalence, Nancy and Denise managed to see a lot of what Portugal has to offer during the festive holiday season.
She writes about the history of Christmas Markets and the Christmas Village in Obidos. There are lots of colorful pictures in this post that I think you’ll enjoy.
