In Colombia, the evening and night of December 7 to 9 is a unique moment in the year. City streets become a blaze of light, with sidewalks, balconies, and terraces covered with lighted candles. This is the traditional Noche de las velitas; that is, night of the little candles.

One of the loveliest celebrations of the Noche de las velitas in Colombia takes place in Villa de Leyva, a picturesque village in the department of Boyacá, which becomes filled with tourists from all over the country who come to enjoy the show and the color of the fireworks contest that fills the colonial streets with a special kind of magic.
