Christmas Vibes and Swarovski Tree in Milan

Milan, December 10, 2015

A Stunning 12 meters high Christmas tree decorated with thousands of lights and fineries, and crowned with a precious silver star-shaped tip magically appeared about a week ago in the heart of Milan.

Babbo Natale, the Italian brother of Santa Clause, put this sparkling marvel right in the center of the renewed Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II in front of the Swarovski boutique. The Austrian producer of luxury crystals helped, in fact, the white-bearded fellow to decorate Milan’s fir of this year.

Beautiful Swarovski tree brought to the city a delightful Christmas mood and tones of positive vibes, adding to the list of Milanese sights one more must-visit wonder.

Unfortunately, as with the majority of wonderworks, even this Christmas tree has its expiration date. It will stay on display only until the 6th of January, the day when Befana, another Italian legendary character associated with winter festivities, will deliver Epiphany Eve small gifts to kids while guilefully carrying off winter holidays and, with it, a fabulous Swarovski tree.
