It happens to be the thirteenth edition of Carols by Candlelight, the event highly acclaimed and expected by many.

Tickets were sold within few hours and many were those who remained waiting for some cancellations in order to get the tickets. Carols by Candlelight became an exclusive event which opes the Christmas season in Gozo.
