Kids light up St Peter’s Square

The Citizen (KZN) - - NEWS - Vat­i­can City

– A gi­ant Christ­mas tree and a larger-than-life Na­tiv­ity scene were due to be in­au­gu­rated yes­ter­day in St Peter’s Square, as part of the Vat­i­can’s sea­sonal tra­di­tions.

The 28-me­tre high spruce fea­tures baubles de­signed by chil­dren from cancer hos­pi­tals and from earth­quake-stricken cen­tral Italy.

The Na­tiv­ity scene, oc­cu­py­ing an 80m2 area, was made by Neapoli­tan crafts­men and was do­nated by a Benedec­tine sanc­tu­ary. – dpa
