|The 'main' feature in Santa Maria|
This evening is 'Natale a' Marina' in Santa Maria -
a 'Presepi vivente' (live Nativity), lots of food
stalls & a chance to try a
panettone gelato for the first time.

milling about in period costume,
lots of chatter but no-one seeming to
know what they should be doing or when.
We didn't follow the piper down to the
stable, as we were too busy eating
our gelati, so we missed the
Presepi - oh well, we'll have to go to the
Twelfth Night celebrations in Castellabate
to see it.
But we did manage to bag a half-price
Perugina panettone from La Bufalina - result!
Oh, and the lights are pretty too, if a little sparse
