O Abies! (O Christmas Tree!)

Nuntii Latini, the weekly Latin news from Finland, reports on the Arbor Natalicia Vaticana (the Vatican Christmas tree). There's also a story, De Muneribus Nataliciis (Regarding Christmas Gifts), which describes some of the presents Europeans are giving to each other this year. You can also find free audio podcasts of past Nuntii Latini programs on Apple Itunes.

Also, don't miss seeing Olympia, the world's Tallest Snow Woman. Olympia is, of course, named after Mount Olympus, the home of the Greek pantheon of mythological gods and goddesses. (Gratias tibi ago to Melissa Bishop of Creative Classical Curriculum for this link!)
