On the way to Christmas 🎄 almost there !
The nativity is a very important features in every Spanish house and in France too. Traditionally “el belén” ou “la crèche” are set-up not too far from the Christmas tree or at its bottom. Every family has its own, but it is also a tradition to visit churches to admire the nativity scenes and characters !
In the south of France in Provence, the tradition of manufacturing clay nativity characters, “les santons” is still well alive and you can buy some of only a couple of centimeters high to a big size ! Some traditional crafts and works are also represented in the scenery.
