Pope Francis celebrated his 80th birthday on December 17, without fanfare.

The Pope has indicated that he plans to spend his birthday quietly at his residence, working a normal schedule. No public events are planned.

The Vatican has, however, set up special email addresses to receive birthday greetings for the Pontiff. For English speakers, the email address is: PopeFrancis80@vatican.va.
