The Christmas Nativity - El Nacimiento




Jerez is  wellknown by its Nativities we even have a Museum in the city.  I like from child this custom and we meet to instal ours every year, It's a mess, children are not already so children but they continue to fight because they want to place the ducks all together in the lake and I say that the lake is too small for so many ducks ( Every year we used to go to the Nativities Market and every year we used to buy a new duck, so we have overpopulation of ducks that will do away with the ecosystem) Some of you can think that we have a zoo more than a Nativity, I think the same. So here you are I hope you like it

Jerez es  conocida por sus Nacimientos, incluso tenemos un Museo en la ciudad. A mi me gusta desde niña esta costumbre y nos reunimos para instalar el nuestro cada año. Es un lio, los niños no son ya tan niños pero siguen peleando porque quieren poner todos los patos juntos en el lago y yo digo que el lago es demasiado pequeño para tantos patos ( Cada año solíamos ir al Mercadillo Belenista y cada año comprábamos un pato nuevo, así que tenemos sobrepoblación de patos que van a acabar con el ecosistema) Algunos pensareis que tenemos un zoo más que un Nacimiento. Yo pienso lo mismo. Así que ahí tenéis, espero que os guste.












We have hens
Tenemos gallinas






Of course we also have sheeps and rabbits
Por supuesto también tenemos ovejas y conejos







Rabbits and porks

  3. Dearest Marina,
    That is a very realistic and fun version of the Christmas nativity. Love the ducks, hens, sheep and pigs! Who knows what all was in the area, some 2000 years ago?
    A very nice family tradition!
    Hugs,
    Mariette
