Madeira Christmas, 27th of December

The 27th of December is called the “Second Eighth”, in Portuguese Segunda Oitava, when almost everybody gets back to work except students and a few shops that were open longer during Christmas eve. It is almost a normal working day though with plenty of issues to talk about with work colleagues and friends and also some street animation in downtown Funchal to entertain tourists. It is a very busy day at Madeira airport as most of the visitants who chosen this island as their New Year’s celebration destination arrive today and tomorrow.
