Malta Independent - - LIFESTYLE & CULTURE - Visit the Face­book page ‘Christ­mas Mar­ket at San An­ton School’ for reg­u­lar up­dates on ven­dors, mar­ket ac­tiv­i­ties, park­ing in­for­ma­tion etc.

The Christ­mas Mar­ket at San An­ton School – an an­nual a fes­tive fun day out for the whole fam­ily with a dif­fer­ence that also raises funds for the school – is be­ing held to­day be­tween 10.30am and 05pm. En­trance is free of charge.

Wooden stalls have been set up, where vis­i­tors will find every­thing you need for a per­fect Christ­mas, from tra­di­tional dec­o­ra­tions, gift-wrap­ping, home ac­ces­sories. gift­ware, jew­ellery, wooden toys, ad­vent cal­en­dars, poin­set­tia and holly plants, choco­lates, chil­dren`s gifts, toys, gourmet foods, spices, fes­tive treats, home-made jams, chut­neys and many more orig­i­nal gifts and stock­ing fillers to im­press your friends and fam­ily.

While wan­der­ing around the mar­ket, the or­gan­is­ers guar­an­tee an aroma of warm mulled wine, tra­di­tional Mal­tese im­buljuta, roasted chest­nuts and freshly baked mince pies.

The fi­nal touches have been ap­plied to Santa’s Grotto, where the lit­tle ones will be able to meet the “real” Santa Claus while chil­dren re­hearse their re­spec­tive roles for the live crib.

A wooden sta­ble has been pur­posely built for the crib in the school pic­nic area un­der a large carob tree. With the sup­port of lo­cal farm­ers this sta­ble will also house live sheep, lambs and, of course, a don­key on the day it­self to trans­form the area into a typ­i­cal nativity scene.

Chil­dren vis­it­ing the mar­ket will be spoilt for choice - they can write their let­ter to Santa, par­tic­i­pate in Christ­mas arts and crafts ac­tiv­i­ties, sto­ry­telling and bak­ing work­shops. The lit­tle ones will also be de­lighted with the bouncy cas­tles and go-cart track in the play area.

In or­der to en­sure the fes­tive spirit, all those present will be treated to a per­for­mance by the cast of this year’s Christ­mas Panto – ‘Un­be­lieve it’ by the MADC. Vis­i­tors will have the op­por­tu­nity to meet the ac­tors and pur­chase tick­ets for the pro­duc­tion.
