Annual Christmas Tree And Neapolitan Baroque Crèche At The Met
Saturday December 17,2011 – Sunday January 08,2012
1000 Fifth Avenue
Learn about the history of Christmas with the Met’s nearly 40 year old tradition of displaying its beautiful Christmas tree and nativity scene. Silk-robed angels and lifelike attendants adorn the eighteenth-century Neapolitan nativity the scene and the magnificent candlelit tree. Lighting ceremonies and recorded music add to the festive display.
This is a fabulous thing to see and immediately gets you in the holiday spirit….just watch the guards who won’t let you take pictures… Scrooges.
