About the Annual Christmas Tree and Neapolitan Baroque Crèche:

For more than 40 years, the Metropolitan Museum of Art has displayed more than two hundred 18th-century Neapolitan crèche figures collected by Loretta Hines Howard and gifted to the museum with a Christmas Tree. The 20-foot-tall blue spruce is decorated with lights, cherubs and features 50 angels among its branches. Each year, there are new angels and crèche figures added to the collection and display.
