Since the morning, the temple is being cleaned. The Nativity scene has already been installed. And very soon it will sparkle with festive lights.

“Every year, according to tradition, the Christmas nativity scene is made of pine branches. The branches are cut down in young pine shoots, but only the lower ones, and not a single pine tree is harmed. This year the nativity scene is made of branches of Himalayan cedars that fell off as a result of the strong wind that had happened recently.” , - the press service has noted.
