It's not bothering me in the least as long I'm not sleeping haha.
Is there any (religious?) reason behind this?
Thinks so. Every town / area has its own yearly traditional festa. Most of the time it has something to do with their "local" saint.
Wiki: It is said that in Malta, Gozo, and Comino there are more than 360 churches, or one church for every 1,000 residents. The parish church (Maltese: "il-parroċċa", or "il-knisja parrokjali") is the architectural and geographic focal point of every Maltese town and village, and its main source of civic pride. This civic pride manifests itself in spectacular fashion during the local village festas, which mark the feast day of the patron saint of each parish with marching bands, religious processions, special Masses, fireworks (especially petards), and other festivities.
