Last night they lit our town Christmas tree. We went down and joined in the fun. It was mostly for the kids. Babbo Natale (Father Christmas) was in his hut, and there were lots of performances by the kids. We went to Bar Mary. It was very mild out so we sat at a table outside. We were joined by some friends who happened by. Then there was the count down – dieci, nove, otto, sette, sei, cinque, quattro, tre, due, uno!! And the tree was lit!
Here are pictures! First the unlighted tree. Then when it is lighted up.
One of the vendors selling Christmas ornaments.
I call this “Cityscape” – projected lights on the buildings (I’m not sure I’d want to live there!)
And with the Rocca in the shot.
Our Collegiata, lit up for L’Imacolatta – with the moon and sparks.
And one of the many sconces of lights on the streets.
Enjoy the season! Buon Natale.
Another great post Nancy, really love the lights on the buildings!
Anche a te! 🌲🍷
Lovely! Buon Natale a te!
