THE MOST BEAUTIFUL CHRISTMAS SCENES FROM AROUND THE GLOBE

The Capitol Christmas tree in Washington D.C., is decorated with 3,000 ornaments that are the handiwork of U.S. schoolchildren.  The encircling evergreens in the 'Pathway of Peace' represents the 50 U.S. states.

The world's largest Christmas tree display rises up the slopes of Monte Ingino outside of Gubbio, in Italy's Umbria region.  It is composed of about 500 lights connected by 40,000 feet of wire.  The tree is a modern marvel for an ancient city.

 

A Christmas tree befitting Tokyo's nighttime neon display is projected onto the exterior of the Grand Prince Hotel Akasaka

Illuminating the Gothic facades of Prague's Old Town Square, and casting its glow over the manger display of the famous Christmas market, is a grad tree cut in the Sumava mountains in the southern Czech Republic.

Venice's Murano Island renowned throughout the world for its quality glasswork is home to the tallest glass tree in the world.  Sculpted by master glass blower Simone Cenedese, the artistic Christmas tree is a modern reflection of the holiday season.

Moscow celebrates Christmas according to the Russian Orthodox calendar on January 7th.  For weeks beforehand, the city is alive with festivities in anticipation of Father Frost's arrival on his magical troika with the Snow Maiden.  He and his helper deliver gifts under the New Year tree, or 'yolka' which is traditionally a fir.

The largest Christmas tree in Europe (more than 230 feet tall) can be found in the Prado da Comercio in Lisbon, Portugal.  Thousands of lights adorn the tree, adding to the special enchantment of the city during the holiday season.

'Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree'; Even in its humblest attire, aglow beside a tiny chapel in Germany's Karwendel mountains, a Christmas tree is a wondrous sight.

Ooh la la Galleries Lafayette!  In Paris, even the Christmas trees are chic, with its monumental, baroque dome, plus 10 stories of lights and high fashion, it's no surprise this show-stopping department store draws more visitors than the Louvre and the Eiffel Tower

In addition to the Vatican's heavenly evergreen, St. Peter's Square in Rome hosts a larger-than-life nativity scene in front of the obelisk.

The Christmas tree that greets revelers at the Puerta del Sol is dressed for a party.  Madrid's two-week celebration makes millionaires along with merrymakers.  On December 22nd, a lucky citizen will win El Gordo (the fat one), the world's biggest lottery.

A token of gratitude for Britain's aid during World War II, the Christmas tree in London's Trafalgar Square has been the annual gift of the people of Norway since 1947.

Drink a glass of gluhwein from the holiday market at the Romer Frankfurt's city hall since 1405 and enjoy a taste of Christmas past.

Against a backdrop of tall, shadowy firs, a rainbow trio of Christmas trees lights up the night (send in your best guess).

December 25th the world will celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.  He was a humble soul who walked the earth 2,000 years ago with over 2.2 billion people today practicing his tenants.  He was the lamb of the eternal who preached love, respect and that all mankind would be raised in the likeness of the Lord.  Merry Christmas to all and to all a good life.  May the eternal bless us all with his wishes.   little guy
