The Christmas season in Madrid officially kicked off Thursday, when the city's festive lights were turned on in the mayor's presence.

A crowd of delighted citizens shared their festive mood as they watched the chorus sing and fireworks burst.

"Very beautiful, the experience has been wonderful," one of the locals said.

The lights will remain in place until January 6th, 2023, being turned on from 18:00 to 00:00 daily.

Due to the energy crisis, every mayor in Spain has decided what to do with festive lights this year. Madrid's mayor made no cuts to Christmas lighting, while more than ten cities reportedly decided to turn off their lights earlier than usual.
