Christmas Festivities

After the annual celebration of the Paschal mystery, has nothing in higher esteem the Church that the celebration of the birth of the Lord and its first manifestations: this takes place at Christmas time.

Christmas time ranges from the first Vespers of Christmas until the Sunday after Epiphany, or the first Sunday following January 6, inclusive.

Christmas vigil mass is used on the evening of December 24, before, either after first Vespers.

On Christmas day you can celebrate three masses, in accordance with the ancient tradition of Roman, i.e. in the evening, to lighten the aurora and day.

Christmas only has the eighth ranked in this way:

a) on Sunday of infraoctava (which follows him to 25 December) the feast of the Holy family takes place.
