In Malta, devotion to the Virgin Mary is very fervent, particularly in the village of Naxxar, where the most important annual feast, taking place over several days, is dedicated to her honour. But beside the religious celebration, there are also more secular festivities, based on traditional local rivalries, which are conducted with a similar intensity.
