Τη Γέννηση του Θεανθρώπου γιορτάζει, με το δικό του τρόπο, κάθε μέρος του κόσμου, από την «πρωταγωνίστρια» Βηθλεέμ μέχρι την Κωνσταντινούπολη, το Βατικανό, τη Μόσχα και την Καλιφόρνια. Γλυκόπικρος ο τόνος στον Ινδικό Ωκεανό, για τη συμπλήρωση δέκα χρόνων από την καταστροφή του τσουνάμι.

Pope Francis celebrated Christmas Eve with a late-night Mass Wednesday in St. Peter’s Basilica and a phone call to some Iraqi refugees forced to flee their homes by Muslim militants. Francis told refugees at the tent camp in Ankawa, a suburb of Irbil in northern Iraq, that they were like Jesus, forced to flee because there was no place for them. For Christians, Christmas marks the birth of Jesus in a Bethlehem barn manger, chosen because there was no room for his parents at an inn. (AP Photo/Gregorio Borgia)
