The Christmas Days are celebrated there in the summer, one awesome summer party with christmas tree and barbecue in the garden or beach! And the Easter Days are celebrated in the fall and in the late fall Whitsun! One Christmas festival and one New Year party in the summer are somewhat totally special and one must for everyone who is tired of celebrating Christmas Days and New Year parties in the winter in the coldness and darkness! However, please do not book the flight too near at the Christmas Days, because the flight tickets are regularly expensiver than for other times.
