Our World Tuesday, ABC Wednesday, U for Unique Candlelight night in Gouda. 2nd or 3rd Tuesday
In one of my previous posts I wrote about a unique event happening in Gouda, which is the city of cheese but also of candles. On the second or third Tuesday in December the whole city centre of Gouda is lit by candlelight only with one exception: the enormous Christmas tree at the market place! This tree has electrical lights to protect it from fire. All candles are inside and placed in front of the windows.The town is always full of tourists. In the church Christmas carols are being played which can be heard everywhere. It would be like a fairy tale if there were not so many people. Nevertheless it is still very unique!
