If you want to have a really special Roman Christmas eve then just go to the "Russicum" (Russian seminary) for 6 p.m. vespers. At the very end your forehead will be anointed (just after this you kiss the hand of the cleric) and then you will be offered a piece of bread as a gift and sign that the fast ends at that moment and the celebration starts.
