By tradition almost in every part of Italy, people recover lights and decorations and prepare the tree and the Nativity scene on the 8th of December for the imminent Christmas.
In Caorle, the festivities for the Advent period start during the Day of the Immaculate Conception. A benevolent show called “A Child is born,” the event which opens the Christmas in Caorle, will take place in the sports hall “Valter Vicentini” on the 08th of December at 09.00 p.m. It is a show-concert and its proceeds will be donated to ABC “Associazione Bambini Chirurgici” (Surgical Children Association) of Burlo Hospital of Trieste. Very important guests of the music and television world will participate to this event.
