Christmas lights up the city


The ballerina of hopes and dreams has signalled the start to the Christmas festivities. She did so at the official ceremony for switching on Barcelona’s Christmas lights, an event that also included a new sound and light show featuring hope-filled boxes, right at the junction between Avinguda Paral·lel and Ronda Sant Pau.

The actress Mercedes Sampietro was the master of the ceremony, reading out a document with “instructions for dreaming” while the figure chosen for this Christmas, the “Dreams Ballerina”, came out of her box to invite all Barcelonians to dream and fill the city with generosity, love, solidarity, happiness and dreams.
