Lisbon had a Christmas full of luck in 2015 with the second edition of the Christmas Market SANTA CASA GAMES, an initiative promoted by Jogos Santa Casa in partnership with the City of Lisbon, Cofina and Unisports production. The tradition began in 2013 with the Classic Lottery Christmas Fair and in 2015 the Praça do Município (Town Hall Square) in Lisbon shone with even more strength. There were many the animations for the whole family. The House of Santa Claus, the factory of the Elfs, the Island of sweets and treats and the Parisian Carousel have recreated a real Christmas village. At the level of the best Christmas markets in Europe, musical performances, show cooking sessions, magic and circus arts performances and more than 30 stalls of handicrafts and cuisine were provided which gave even more lustre to the Christmas precinct.
As the capital of the country already deserved such an event, the emblematic Christmas Classic Lottery served as a motto for the creation of a large event, inspired by the biggest and best Christmas markets in Europe and the world, reinforcing values such as sharing and Solidarity. The many free animations allowed the whole family to live in a differentiated place, stimulating the Christmas spirit throughout the month of December.
