One Million Stars
In cities all over Switzerland, the charitable organization Caritas is organizing a candle-lighting ceremony called “Eine Million Sterne.” In Basel, this will take place at Marktplatz, starting at 16:00. Thousands of candles will be lit, and donations to help any of Caritas’ numerous causes will be accepted (voluntary). This is a beautiful sight to see, especially as night sets in!
You are also invited to visit their website and find out how you can start your own event in your area—it is a beautiful holiday tradition that is all in the spirit of giving.
