Zámkem Loučeň zněly na třetí adventní neděli zvony
The clock of the Castle church tower you haven´ t heard to ring for a good few decades. Third Sunday of Advent, on December 12th, at noon suddenly several bells sang, truly a glockenspiel. A very stylish name for the third Sunday of advent ″carillon″
"Until Christmas Day from now there are only twelve days, so it is important to send our wishes to Santa Claus – in Czech called Jezisek" By these words Prince and Princess opened Angel´s Post Office. "Where else should such institutions work than on the Castle, that was a home to the Thurn–Taxis family, founders of the European post?, "said the Castle manager Jiri Senohrábek. The Post Office gave children beautiful lists into which children can write their wishes, wishes of Christmas gifts.
Three times during the afternoon was brought back the tradition of St. Lucia. Lucias used to visit the Czech countryside and check upon housekeepers whether they maintain their household in order and also if on the feast of Saint Lucia they don’t work. "Prince Alexander thrived largely on how each not organized housekeeper gets a lesson, but it did not expect to send a Saint Lucia in his household, mess that was in his office was unbelievable because he had given his servant an extraordinary Christmas holiday, without servants help he is unable to clean, and even his mess simply could not be tolerated. We came back after many years and I pulled Alexander´s ears. Like his sister perhaps I am allowed to do it, even though since childhood we call each other in third person. Truth is, I did not have to do so in front of dozens of onlookers, guests," said during the feast of St. Lucia Princess Karolina. At 14 o´ clock in the Castle after music of bells transferred from the Prague Loreto was played, starting from the Castle gate parade of children together with Princess Karolina, who led the parade, decorated a giant Advent wreath in courtyard with its bells.

Theresa won a great contest for young writers, which involves school-age writers with their own Christmas story.
