For years people have believed that Mary was conceived without the indigenous sin. Firstly, this day was celebrated as “The Holy Day of Obligation”. Secondly, Catholic churches across the world hold feasts to celebrate this day. Special services mark the beginning of December 8 as the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. In Rome, the pope places a wreath in front of the huge statue of the Virgin Mary. Lastly, people for years have celebrated this feast at home with their families. They also enjoy street food.
