Christmas decorations go up in St. Peter's Square

2015-12-01

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Decorations have finally been put on the giant Christmas tree erected in St. Peter's Square. 

Tourists and passerbys looked on as a construction crew put the finishing touches on the tree. The crew even had to use lifts to reach the high branches. The tree, a Vatican tradition, has a rainbow of large ornaments, all with different decorations. The tree is complete with a large, white star on top. 

Additionally, to the right side of the tree, builders were hard at work setting up a life-size Nativity scene. The impressive creation has multiple characters, including Mary and Joseph and soon, baby Jesus. 

These decorations add to the festive spirit of the Christmas season at the Vatican.
