Has anyone done Madrid around Christmas? Any concerns going that time of year? Does everything shut down?

I was in Malaga and surrounding areas around New Years and everything was shut down, it was really disappointing. Madrid might be a bit better, but I wouldn’t go back to Spain that time of year if I could avoid it
