Rome Christmas Overview

Christmas_s165x110

Though Christmas is a Christian holiday, it has taken on a much more universal and magical meaning on the global calendar thanks to images of Santa Claus, carolers, winter wonderlands, and scrumptious meals.

In many cities, the weather outside is pretty frightful during the Christmas season. Such is usually case in Rome, where families everywhere from the Testaccio to Pigneto gather to exchange gifts, sing classic Xmas tunes, and drink a whole lot of spiked eggnog.

In addition to family time, the Xmas season in Rome means a potpourri of fantastic Christmas events for kids from one to 92. One yuletide pastime is the potpourri of various nativity scenes that pop up around the city. These sights remind Italians of the true meaning of Christmas outside of churches, museums, and other popular city spots.   

Perhaps the Roman area that captures the Christmas spirit the best is Saint Peter’s Square. Home to a huge Christmas tree, this iconic public space draws thousands of visitors on Christmas Eve when the Pope says a midnight mass inside Saint Peter’s Basilica.

Romans who aren’t big on religion can party the elf out of the season at a variety of Christmas clubs, bars, lounges, and pubs. There, even the Scroogeiest of Ebenezers can catch a buzz, break it down on the dance floor, and feel his cold heart melt ever so slightly.

Whether you are interested in celebrating the birthday of Jesus or partying through the New Year, Christmas in Rome in 2018 has something for everyone!
