The Festival of Lights, which for over 20 years has transformed the capital of Gaul into a magical spectacle, originates from a tribute to the Virgin Mary that the Lyonnais celebrate on December 8. On this occasion, they have candles (lanterns) on their balconies and on the windows of the apartments. The party has evolved into a big show where the facades of the main monuments of the city serve as a screen for light shows.

The Festival of Lights attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors each year, and the city's hotels are usually full at this time of year. The city of Lyon and the entire Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region are among the regions most affected by the resurgence of the virus.
