The St. Peter's Basilica is reflected on a Christmas decoration of the 24 meters (78.74 feet) Christmas tree that was lit in St. Peter's square at the Vatican, Friday, Dec. 14, 2012. The Christmas season kicks off Friday at the Vatican with the traditional lighting of the tree in St. Peter's Square — and a reminder from the Pope about what happened when the "lights" of God were turned off in past atheistic regimes.
