Annual Christmas Tree and Neapolitan Baroque Crèche at the Met

One of our favorite things to do around Christmas is see the Christmas Tree and Neapolitan Baroque Crèche at the Met.

Christmas Tree and Neapolitan Baroque Crèche at the Met
In this annual event, a vivid 18th-century Neapolitan Nativity scene (embellished with diminutive, lifelike attendant figures and hovering, silk-robed angels) adorns a candlelit 20-foot blue spruce.

November 22, 2005 - January 8, 2006, Medieval Art, 1st floor, Metropolitan Museum of Art, 1000 Fifth Avenue
