The streets are festooned
with bright Christmas decorations,
even the churches! The traditional
symbol of this time of year is not
the Christmas tree (introduced only
a couple of decades ago), but the
nativity scene. Not to be missed:
the Nativity Scene Exhibition in Tarquinia
and the real-life scenes in Tuscania.
This is also the month when the olive
harvest is complete and the locals
can finally relax and celebrate, as
in the Sagra dell'Olivo in Canino,
including a historical pageant.
