Given the very full calendar of festivities and events we will try to provide you with a list of the appointments with tradition that should not be missed, many other public events and entertainments we will deal with further ahead….

We will begin with the Christmas celebrations that are particularly rich and that start from the 8th of December, the day of the Immaculate Conception and go on until Epiphany.
In this span of time between the Old and New Year every Church and every entrance hall and even the characteristic corners including the fountains, are decorated with devotion, when the tradition of “presepe” (crib scene) is renewed. Many of these are prepared using antique statues of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries that people have managed to conserve all these years to continue the tradition; do not miss the crib laid out in the Church del Carmine at Atrani, the seventeenth century statues are faithful reproductions of the citizen of Atrani in that epoch; and at Pogerola, the representation of the Birth of Christ with live participants… for sea-lovers the interesting pilgrimage by divers to the ceramic crib in the Emerald Grotto….

Squares and streets are bright with decorations, the sweet music of the zampogne(bag-pipes), the scent of roast chestnuts and the perfume of honey and cinnamon, bring back memories of childhood. The towns seem wrapped in a magic light, they have a dream like quality especially with the “descent of the star”: a large comet made of fireworks that at the stroke of midnight on Christmas Eve passes over the Duomo Square and stops in front of the Cathedral doors. A triumph of church bells and fireworks salute the birth of Christ and then everyone enters the Cathedral for the Solemn Mass In Mater Domini…

The whole period is a succession of Art Exhibitions, the tasting of typical products, folklore, musical and theatrical performances, a real marathon of events that prepare the way for the magnificent New Year celebrations: New Year Eve at Amalfi is celebrated in the Town Square!
