To put you in the mood

If this does not put you in the mood I do not know what will, this beautiful photo of the Christmas Tree by the Amphitheater of the Flavians on Via dei Fori Imperiali in Rome. Though it has to be pointed out that the tradition of the Christmas tree is relatively new in Central and Southern Italy. It made its first appearance about 20 years ago at the most, many Italians still do not have one at home. The Crèche or Presepio is the Italian Tradition at Christmas. How often I have walked this avenue.

Only 27 days before Christmas. Click on photo for larger view.
