The event name translates from the old Norman-French language and means ‘Christmas Festival’.
The early sprinkling of seasonal magic ensures that visitors and locals can enjoy night parades, dazzling lights, festive films, street theatre, open air carol concerts and ice skating.
Visitors can also shop at the special food and craft markets brimming over with festive treats and thoughtful gifts in the lead up to the big day.
Christmas shopping breaks in Jersey mean fun and festivities in addition to the huge variety of artisan outdoor markets.
You can make the most of the late night shop openings, key high street favourites and independent boutiques. All minus the VAT of course!
Jersey’s shops are also open on Sundays (a special occurrence reserved for the month of December).
In the lead up to Christmas, when it’s time to put those bags down and your feet up for a well deserved glass of something, there are plenty of cafes and bars to choose from.
