Counting down


I will now spend the next few days checking every nativity scene I find, for proof of my friend’s claim that the baby Jesus isn’t added until the 25th. The light is a little strong here but that is definitely an empty crib in the nativity scene in Trento’s train station.

    • I walked past a large outdoor scene the other day, where all the pieces were represented by stones, and there was definitely no stone baby jesus there. So it seems to be true! The other tradition is to have the three wise men start at the edge of the scene and gradually get closer to the manger, so I’ll have to check for that one next year!
