WHEN I walked through Palma yesterday morning it was packed with Christmas shoppers, bars and restaurants were busy and I almost forget that Majorca was closed for business in the winter. You see that is what most people think in Britain;as soon as October arrives Majorca puts up a Closed sign and that is it. That is the reason there are few flights and that is the reason why tour firms do not operate a winter programme. But you see what is interesting is that resorts on the mainland, with a similar climate to ours, are open for business. And they are busy. Now, considering that this island is “closed for business”you would be quite amazed at what happens here over the Christmas and New Year  periods, if you were sitting back in Britain. We have scores of festive events ranging from concerts to fairs. Now, obviously after a long summer season it could be argued that Majorca does need a winter break, but we are not closed. Some of the resorts have closed down but others are open. I think the best thing Majorca can do is spread the word that the island is not closed and it is far more fun than many resorts on the mainland. The Palma City Council is trying to spread the word across Europe and indeed Palma is great during the winter months. The next time a group of British travel agents comes to Majorca Ithink we should point out that the island does not close for the winter. We are open for business.
