An amazing Christmas light show in Trieste

You’ve got to see this. Take a historical building in a beautiful Piazza and project on it a 3d light show accompanied by fantastic music and you get a recipe for pure amazement. I think this is best Christmas show I’ve ever seen. Truly.

Kudos to Luca Agnani, Claudio Cimini and Francesco Mari who are the creative minds behind this masterpiece, and to Video New Trieste for producing the footage.

Merry Christmas everyone!

 

How to make a Nativity scene with a Panettone

Yesterday I went  grocery shopping and while I was walking by the bakery department I saw something that immediately stopped me in my tracks. Two things to be exact. First, I saw a 10 kg Panettone for the “sweet” price of €250 (~$325).

But what really impressed me was a Nativity scene made with a simple Panettone and edible Nativity figurines.

If you want to replicate this great idea and you live in the States, you can easily find the Panettone either at Trader’s Joe or World Market. As for the Nativity figurines, I wasn’t able to find any edible set online, but I did find some figures that are really cute and would be perfect for this project:

I’m sure your guests will love it!
