Torch-lit procession, Pyrénées, France
In the Pyrénées region of south-west France, especially in the town of Viella, it is custom to celebrate the turn of the year by taking part in evening Mass held in the town’s cathedral followed by a beautiful torch-lit procession that goes from the church all the way into the town’s main square.
