Christmas at the Vatican

Although the Vatican knows Christmas may be very different this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic, it already has chosen its stamps and the Nativity scene and tree that will stand in St. Peter’s Square. The larger-than-life-sized ceramic figures in the Nativity scene (to be unveiled on 12/11) will come from a high school in Castelli, a town in the ceramic-producing region of Teramo, northeast of Rome.
