Christmas lights switched on in Valletta

Christmas season is officially under way in Valletta after the city’s festive lights were switched on.

The decorations have added lots of festive cheer to Republic Street and Merchant Street.

They were switched on by Malta’s culture minister Owen Bonnici, Valletta mayor Alfred Zammit and Valletta Cultural Agency chairman Jason Micallef on Monday night.

A large Christmas tree has also been placed in front of Castille.

It’s fair to say that the city is bursting with festive spirit as we count down the days to Christmas.
