mood-lighting or ginger-snap

The old high gate towers undergo a very neat transformation with Christmas time when they’re strung with lights and the outline gives the stone the glow and the rich, earthy hue of a gingerbread house (Lebkucken Haus) with icing, especially from a distance.
On the interior, within the city walls, a different sort of Space Invaders light show was beamed on that tall canvas to pique the shopping mood on the cold night of the seasonal market and a lot of different stalls lined the historic city center. Surrounding buildings were also bathed and splashed with spotlights of all different colours.
