Vatican lights up Christmas tree

December 17, 2010. (-ONLY VIDEO-) The Vatican turned the lights on for the first time on the Christmas tree located in St. Peter’s Square. It’s over 110 feet tall with over 1500 white and yellow bulbs and a star adorning the top.

The spruce came from the town of Luson, located in northern Italy.

The first time a Christmas tree was placed in the Vatican was in 1982, at the request of John Paul II.
