Christmas in Florence

Our friend Karl of Bolzano Daily Photo asked me yesterday how I was going to celebrate the anniversary of this blog. My answer was: not posting about Livorno for a few days. Welcome to Christmas in Florence!
Nativity scene, piazza del Duomo, Florence
A simple nativity scene in in Piazza del Duomo (Cathedral Square), on the left of Santa Maria del Fiore.
Nativity scene, Santa Maria Novella, Florence
Another nativity scene, with also a waterfall. It is set in what once was the Cemetery of Plaona, on the right side of the Basilica of Santa Maria Novella, and it is seen from the entrance of Via degli Avelli.

These are lovely.

Very nice. But where is the baby? Does he come only on Christmas Eve?

Enjoy your away-time. Days in Florence are a good reward for your five years of blogging work.

Dina - Yes, the baby comes only at midnight, on Christmas Eve. We are at home, not in Florence: I only need a photographic break from Livorno.
