  • Description

    BUSTLING THRONGS OF CHRISTMAS SHOPPERS HAVE BEEN MAKING THEIR WAY THROUGH THE STREETS OF ROME IN INCREASING NUMBERS AS THE SEASONAL BOOM REACHES ITS PEAK.

    TRADERS HAVE BEEN DOING A ROARING BUSINESS SELLING CHRISTMAS TREES -- SPECIALLY IMPORTED FROM COLDER CLIMATES -- AND THE STREETS HAVE COME ALIGHT AS SHOPKEEPERS HAVE TRANSFORMED THEM INTO A NEON-LIT FAIRYLAND.

    BUT, BECAUSE OF ITALY'S STRONG RELIGIOUS ASSOCIATIONS, CHRISTMAS IS NOT MERELY A TRADER'S FESTIVAL AND NO STREET IS COMPLETE WITHOUT ITS CRIB, DEPICTING THE INFANT JESUS.
