The traditional Christmas tree that decorates St. Peter's Square has already been placed in its center. The tree, which will accompany the giant Nativity Scene, comes from Palena, a village of 1242 inhabitants in Abruzzo, a region in central Italy.

The 30-meter fir tree that occupies the center of St. Peter's Square is not exactly the one that was designated for it two years ago.

The tree that had been chosen was a protected species and the mayor who offered it to the Vatican thought it was in the territory of his village, Rosello, but it was not.
