"It's lovely, to see that the tradition still exists and that not only is Christmas for gifts and things like that, but also that the original Christmas, the Nativity scene, the Christ coming to the world still exists and is appreciated.” 

This intricate and detailed Nativity and Christmas tree display will continue to delight visitors to the Vatican throughout the Christmas season.
