Weekly Roundup: Christmas and Beyond

December 22 to 28, 2018

'Tis the season and Team Luxarazzi hopes that you spent a wonderful couple of days with your loved ones. Naturally, there hasn't been much going on royal-wise over the last week, so lucky for you, we missed a few things in our last Weekly Roundup so there's something for this week to share.

In the spirit of Christmas, the International Peace Light arrived at Schloss Vaduz in Liechtenstein on December 19. Now in its 32nd year, the Peace Light from Bethlehem campaign was originally organised by the Austrian Broadcasting Company (ORF) and was part of a large charitable relief mission for children in need in Austria and abroad called Light into Darkness. Since then it has greatly expanded and the light is now travelling from Bethlehem, where it is lit by an Austrian child in the Natavity Grotto, to more than 30 countries each year. Hereditary Prince Alois and Hereditary Princess Sophie were on hand to receive the light. More pictures...

Already on December 8, Hereditary Prince Alois and Hereditary Princess Sophie were in attendance for the 250th anniversary of the parish of Triesenberg. After a mass at the local parish church, a reception was held in the municipality. More pictures...

Prior to Christmas, Hereditary Prince Sophie also made her traditional advent visits to the different retirement homes and the hospital of Liechtenstein. She was on tour for several days, pictures of one of the visits here.
