Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!

With this collection of my photos I would like to make a small gift to all my Panoramio’s friends who did not have the possibility to see and feel the special Christmas atmosphere of Italy seen in my eyes!

Two years ago I visited a small village in Valle d'Aosta in Italy called Bard. There every family is preparing in the windows outside and looking to the street small scenery of born of Christos - it is called here Presepe or (Crib). They are so nice to see so you lost yourself to make photos in every window. ;-)

! Please note that this Presepe (Crib) is made also under the water !

And generally in Italy (but not only in Italy) people everywhere are putting lots of lights for Christmas in their garden and houses outside. I can feel like in a tale during the Christmas in Italy!

In my native country Bulgaria people usually are preparing their houses inside for Christmas and of course with the traditional Christmas tree! The lights there still are not fashion outside but in the big cities municipality is going to put the special lights outside in nowadays!

But in Bulgaria in Christmas, there is some very special tradition I will let you know later in my Special Christmas Card for you! :-)

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everybody who read this one!

My best wishes, Mimi
