The Christmas season in Florence



It’s here! The city is geared up for Christmas.


The tree was placed, awaiting the lights.  It was lit up on the evening of 8 December.

The fancy stores and hotels have lovely decorations:





I feel like the creche scene at San Lorenzo is always a bit sad.





I love the way the statue of justice is reflected on the wall to the left:


I like the simple, natural decorations the best. Below this church uses garlands of evergreens and citrus:




A local charity had a bazaar the other weekend and I spotted this Santa Claus there.  Can you tell that Santa Claus is not a natural part of the Italian holiday of Natale?  I think it is obvious. There were some kids around, but no one wanted to sit on his lap!
