Mexican Christmas at the Vatican

Zenit reports on the holiday festivities at the Vatican. The Mexican nativity is scheduled to be in place in Paul VI Hall from 19 December through 2 February. My Lutheran sister’s calendar is off from this: her Christmas deco goes up before Thanksgiving and lasts till New Year’s Day.

The Vatican has a life-size creche.

In our home, the tree used to be up and decorated on Christmas Eve. With the onset of age and having a child in the house, a concession is made for the 17th of December. I feel better reading that the Vatican tree, now decorated, will be lit up tonight. I love having our tree up, but my wife always deconstructs on the feast of the Baptism of the Lord.
