Every year, mid December, “Kaarsjesavond” (Candlenight) is celebrated at the Market place (Markt) in Gouda (Holland), when the ordinary electric lighting gives place to innumerable candles. That same night filmed December 16, 2008 was very, very cold.
Carillon played by Boudewijn Zwart.
Gouda people, Thanks!
