As promised yesterday, here are two videos I made of the fireworks that were set off for celebration good luck at the fountain nativity in Largo Scario in Amalfi. It is traditional before or after placing the baby Jesus in the nativity to set off fireworks for good luck. On Christmas Eve you’ll hear fireworks being set off at all hours of the night (and morning!). The video is in two parts due to technical difficulties (also including operator difficulties). Watch at the end of the second video for when the table of panettone is brought out and the young boys flock toward it. It’s Christmastime!!
Does your family set of fireworks for Christmas and New Year’s Eve?
