Antonio Alarcon opens the door to a shrine for the Virgin of Charity outside his home decorated in Christmas lights on Christmas Eve in Havana, Cuba, late Saturday Dec. 24, 2011. Cuban faithful celebrating Christmas say they have plenty to cheer this year as they prepare for the arrival of Pope Benedict XVI, the first visit by a pontiff to the Communist-run island since John Paul II's historic tour nearly 14 years ago.
