Vatican Christmas tree is already in St. Peter's Square


There are few weeks left until Christmas and the Vatican has already begun to prepare the manger scene and the Christmas tree.

The tree is an 82' tall red spruce and is from Trento, in the north of Italy.

The ornaments that will adorn it are ceramic, and have been made by children who are hospitalized and receiving treatment in pediatric oncology.

Not much can be seen of the manger scene yet, however, the figures and setting come from Malta, which is a reminder of the people who are forced to escape from their countries via the sea.

Both the Nativity and the Christmas tree will be lit on December 9, and will remain illuminated until Sunday, January 8.
