The Vatican displays a different donated nativity scene each year, chosen by its municipal government. This year's was made between 1965 and 1975 by students and teachers in Castelli, an Italian town famous for ceramics. The astronaut represents the lunar landings of the late 1960s and early 1970s, according to a description for visitors.

VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - Pope Francis on Sunday appeared to add his own thumbs-down to widespread criticism of an unorthodox nativity scene in St. Peter's Square, telling visitors to instead visit a nearby exhibition of traditional crèches. At his last Sunday blessing and address before Christmas, Francis also said the holy day that marks the birth of Jesus had been "kidnapped" by consumerism. Speaking from his window overlooking the square, Francis twice urged people to visit an outdoor exhibit under the square's colonnade where 100 small traditional nativity scenes are on display.

Pope Francis also warned against "frenetic" consumerism during the Christmas season, urging people to remember those who have nothing.

"Consumerism has kidnapped Christmas, (taking it) away from us," he said. "There is no consumerism in the manger in Bethlehem. What is there is reality, poverty and love."

Christmas became all about stuff - expensive products made in communist countries that don't believe in any of it, but laugh all the way to the Banks! !!

As every other Pope, Francis is very political, he has an entire team to precisely tell him what to do and what not to do!
