About the event

To all our friends, the members of the Mamajah community and the inhabitants of Loëx,

Come join us for the Ballade Ô Lanternes which will take place on December 21 at the Mamajah Farm and surroundings! Here we will celebrate the Winter Solstice, which our ancestors called Yule, and which symbolizes the return of Light and hope, as the days begin to grow again after the Sun reaches its lowest point in the horizon.  

This is an opportunity to meet together to illuminate and thrill the hearts of the inhabitants of the Loëx peninsula and friends of Mamajah. After a workshop to create paper lanterns and lanterns for young and old, we will stroll to the music of our creations in the village to spread the joy around us, before meeting around the fire at the Mamajah Farm with a good meal, in music and poetry.
