Lyon and Lights

A post as a souvenir of the time I was living in Lyon.

Since thursday and until tomorrow, as every year, Lyon celebrated the lights. A traidtion since 1852. On the 8 of December, a procession climbs  with lanterns to the statue of the Nativity of the Virgin close to the Basilica of Fourvière. It is the symbol of the gratitude to Mary. “Lumignons” to the windows now meets high technology with, since 14 years, a serie of games of light on every monument of the street. A know-how exported all over the world.
