One Sunday near the end of November, when our thoughts are starting to focus on Christmas, there is a Christmas opening event downtown Närpes. A cozy Christmas atmosphere with a handicraft market can be found at the market place, along with various performances. Perhaps you will find a home baked Christmas cake, a homemade wreath or some other beautiful Christmas decoration. There are special activities for children; arts and crafts, a petting zoo, and of course Santa comes for a visit.
You can also browse the different shops downtown Närpes. They stay open for the entire afternoon and usually they treat their customers to something extra special on this pleasant Sunday. Take time to admire their Christmas storefront displays and remember that if you take the time to get your Christmas shopping done now, you can take it easy and enjoy the other Christmas preparations in December.
