Christmas and New Year on Lake Como in Italy

Magical Advent season

Christmas is in the air. Fragrant biscuits, decorated fir trees, glittering shop window displays. To the delight of the children, the & ldquo; Babbo Natale & ldquo; Santa Claus . The lovingly decorated markets with handicraft products and local specialties occupy the historic centers of the villages and towns and illuminate the squares with thousands of small lights and stars- and the Christmas crib is reminiscent of a very special night.

& uuml; Festively decorated places like Como, Bellagio or Gravedona, beautifully located on Lake Como. As well as Morbegno, Chiavenna or Madesimo in the Valtellina valley, invite you to linger. Secret lanes, picturesque squares and promenades shine in the Christmas lights. Even in winter, Lake Como has a very mild climate. It is not for nothing that palm trees and other Mediterranean plants thrive here. Relax in the mild climate and forget the worries of everyday life. Let yourself be pampered by a wonderfully beautiful landscape and the local festive traditions.

The Christmas festival in Italy begins six days before Christmas Eve and ends on January 6th . The Christmas tree is not of central importance here but the crib , which should not be missing in any Christian family. Here, too, fasting is part of the festival. It starts 24 hours before Christmas Eve.

Giving presents is on January 6th, the day of the Three Kings, who brought their gifts to the manger.
In Italy this day is more important than the saint Evening when the family meets to eat and go to church, but when there is no gift giving.
