Christmas Eve mass at the Vatican is broadcasted around the world each year and is a highlight of the Roman Catholic calendar. Those lucky enough to get tickets to the truly ethereal event have the opportunity to experience a Christmas like no other. Midnight mass is followed by another assembly on Christmas day. For those who are searching for a less commercialized Christmas, the Vatican is a good choice.
