In case you hadn’t noticed, Christmas is just around the corner and for the first time Marbella Town has picked a local personality to be Santa Claus.
Or in this case Santa Maria, as Marbella Mayor Jose Bernal has announced that Global Gift founder Maria Bravo will be standing in for Santa on December 23.
“We want to give more magic to Christmas in Marbella” said the mayot from (no doubt) a grotto in Town Hall “and we believe that Maria Bravo is the ideal person to be the first Santa Claus”
Maria will take place in a children’s Christmas parade through Marbella on December 23 that will finish at the Town Hall, as well as visiting the children’s ward of the Hospital Costa del Sol.
Flanked by her elves, Maris commented “It is an honour to be the first Santa Claus in Marbella because he is a character who does not associate with any particular religion, sex or race, but symbolises the magic and hope of Christmas “and added she was ” enthusiastic “about a proposal “Aimed at children and, above all, those who need it most at this time”
Planet Marbella eagerly awaits whether Maria’s ex Bruce Willis, could be persuaded to join in, making it a Die Hard style, action packed Christmas, or even her BFF Eva Longoria, could be enlisted as one of Santa’s little helpers!!!
