Description: The Museum continues a longstanding holiday tradition with the presentation of its Christmas tree, a favorite of New Yorkers and visitors from around the world. A vivid eighteenth-century Neapolitan Nativity scene?embellished with a profuse array of diminutive, lifelike attendant figures and silk-robed angels hovering above -- adorns the candlelit spruce. Recorded music and lighting ceremonies add to the enjoyment of the holiday display.
