The Metropolitan Museum of Art says…

Take part in this long-established yuletide tradition in New York and see the Christmas Tree and Neapolitan Baroque Crèche at the Met Museum, on view for the holiday season. The vivid 18th-century Neapolitan Nativity scene—embellished with a profuse array of small, 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. Note: Dramatic lighting ceremonies take place on most Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays at 4:30 p.m.; and Fridays and Saturdays at 4:30, 5:30, and 6:30 p.m.
