The Valletta Cultural Agency’s (VCA) Christmas Programme will take place from the 8th till the 24th December in the main squares, strategic locations and the quaint streets of Valletta while Christmas lights and decorations can continue to be enjoyed throughout January.
Take a photo with the Christmas Tree and the Crib near the Parliament Building or the nativity scene at St George’s Square which is the work of Artist Lisa M. Kaehler. The five panel artwork of this year’s representation of the Nativity, narrates the birth of Christ in a sequential, yet continuous manner. Various characters, inspired by traditional crib figurines populate the panels, as they slowly gather to welcome Baby Jesus among us. The style of the digital artwork portrays bold and clean graphic outlines that are almost neutralised by the freehand and spontaneous henna art patterns that adorn the scene festively.
On selected days, Santa Claus’ assistants on stilts will be roaming the city streets where their duty is to receive children’s letters and deliver them to Santa. Since they are very tall, their job at the North pole is to read the long letters. Santa will be rewarding the good children.
Santa’s assistants will be performing on Tuesday 8th December between 4 and 7pm, Wednesday 16th December between 5 and 8pm, and Saturday 19th December between 11am and 2pm and on Wednesday 23rd December between 4 and 7pm.
