Many thanks emilio. Dec. 7 lighting. Pearl Harbor Day in the US. Not a holiday, just remembrance of a really bad day in Hawaii in 1941.
Xmas tree is on and lit on Dec 7 St. Ambrose (Sant'Ambrogio) day. Is the city Patron Saint (+ 397); on same day Scala Opera season is opening with a Gala. Traditionally Xmas season is starting shopping season. The top of the Duomo steeple (guglia) is completed with national flag but you cannot see here for the negligence of webcam owner allowing the continuous image dropping.
many people why?
Thank you is2daytuesday. Interesting name BTW. And today is Friday (Nov. 16). :-)
Last year the Christmas tree was lit on the 7th of December.
When are they putting up the Christmas tree here (Milan) C. Sam? And when will it be lit? Thanks.
Listening to good music here in Milan, I remember last year they put together a gigantic Christmas tree like in Madrid and now they still do not start, in the Madrid chamber they are already putting together, it looks great ... And here when?
what is the parade for today
31oct18--Tomorrow is "1 November All Saints’ Day", also known as Festa di Tutti i Santi, is both a religious and public holiday in Italy on November 1 every year. It collectively celebrates all of the Catholic saints. It is a day off for the general population, and schools and most businesses are closed. EnJoy EnJoy
Thanks Jenny. Hope they got the record, a very good cause.
It's a 5km / 10km walk / run to race money for research into female cancer, with an attempt to make the largest pink ribbon, with the people taking part, hoping for a world record, good luck to all taking part,
Anyone know what's happening today. There is a sea of umbrellas and plastic macs but I can't find any info about why they are all gathering. Looks like it might be some sort of race.
