St. Peter’s Square is ready for Christmas after the Christmas tree and nativity scene were lit up.
The Christmas tree is a 90-feet tall red fir tree from Andalo, in the Trentino region of northern Italy.
This year’s nativity scene comes from Huancavelica, in the Peruvian Andes. It is made up of 35 figures representing its landscape and its people.
The Christmas tree and the nativity scene will adorn St. Peter’s Square until January 9, 2022.
