Every December 8th a Festival of the Light takes place in Lyon.
I know that these kind of festival takes place in all around the world. But in Lyon it is bit different. This day in Lyon is dedicated to Mother Mary and it is common yo lit candlw in the window to make a wonderful illuminating sensation. The Festuvallasts for 4 days.
It allbegin in dark times on 1643, when plague walked through the land. On September 8 the municipal councillors promised to pay tribute to Mother Mary if the town is spared. Since then every year councillors goes to Basilics of Notre-Dame de Fourviere(look that up, wow) lights the cabdles and gives offerings to Mother Mary.
