Christmas’s eve and Christmas’s day
The Christmas atmosphere, you know, is sweet wherever you are for it entails a very strong emotional charge. However spending Christmas in Naples makes this event more memorable. Let's start by saying that in the historical center of Naples the crib was born. Actually, in the small street of San Gregorio Armeno, where you can breath a Christmas atmosphere every day of the year, the shops of artisans and artists’cribs are the right setting to enjoy this holiday. The symbol of Christianity, the birth of the Savior is skillfully represented in the crib where at the same time there is a amazing description of the neapolitan popular life. The Neapolitan crib of XVIII century mixes the biblical scenes with scenes of everyday life of the time by using the artists’ memories and imagination. Of course both the houses of the Neapolitan people and many churches will exhibit proudly their cribs (some of these are real pieces of art like that one at San Martino or at Royal Palace of Caserta). The crowning glory of the Christmas celebration can be reached at the time of the dinner the night before and lunch on Christmas Day. The delicacies of traditional Neapolitan recipes will decreed the satisfaction of the guests by discovering an unforgettable Naples.
