(1) General Preparations. The preparations are the same as for any great feast, according as the Mass is a High or a Solemn Mass.

(2) The Color of the Vestments, Tabernacle Veil and Antependium. It is white for these feasts.

(3) Altar and Sanctuary Decorations. The altar and Sanctuary are decorated in keeping with the solemnity of the feast and as the circumstances of each parish permit. The Christmas crib is quite generally a special feature in all churches during this season.

NOTE: Every priest is allowed to celebrate three Masses on Christmas, hence the sacristan should see to the renewal of the cruets and additional hosts.
