Let There Be Light – Valletta Christmas Lights Are Now On!

Love them or Hate Them – They’re Surely a Spectacle!


As the festive season approaches, there’s one particular activity that the population waits eagerly for. Valletta, Malta’s capital city is known for its unique and spectacular Christmas lights. This year is, by no means, an exception.


Last night, on the 19th of November 2018, Republic Street and its equivalent side streets were lit. This year, the festive lights are bigger and a show-stopper. This year’s installation consists of four towering blocks and a large floral arrangement in the centre.


The lights were unveiled by Justice Minister Owen Bonnici, together with the Parliamentary Secretary for Valletta 2018 Deo Debattista and Valletta 2018 Chairman Jason Micallef.


A number of people took to social media to announce their awe or disbelief with regards to these Valletta Christmas lights. Some were mesmerised by these lights while others expressed their dislike and think of them as extravagant and ‘too much’.


What do you think of this year’s Valletta Christmas lights in Republic Street? Are you a fan?


Book your Christmas vacation in Valletta at AX The Saint John to witness the lights for yourself.
