Every year in Ljubljana Slovenes and foreigners flood the city center (Prešernov Trg.) to see the black night sky be transformed into a beautiful and sparkling Winter Wonderland. At 5 p.m. when the lighting ceremony begins one can hardly move because so many people are there to watch. Of course the ones with the best seats are the children small enough to rest on the shoulders of their parents. At Christmastime the center also has many Christmas booths selling holiday specialties and traditional Slovenian culinary favorites. It's not only the city center that is transformed, though. Throughout the entire central part of the city there are giant trees and light displays!
