The Vatican's tallest Christmas tree is seen twinkling in St. Peter's Square, at the Vatican, Saturday, Dec. 13, 2008. Hundreds of pilgrims from the firs' native Austria sang carols in the pouring rain Saturday as the tree was officially unveiled. The Vatican says the 109-foot (33-meter) red spruce from the Piesting Valley is the tallest since Pope John Paul II started the tradition of setting up a tree in the square in 1982.
