Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories ~ Spanish Nativities

I'm writing this post for the Geneabloggers Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories at the link   Today is a "grab bag" when we are invited to write about anything, and I wanted to share some photographs of  the Spanish nativities  or "nacimientos" I have seen when celebrating Chrismas in Spain or Puerto Rico.

2005, San Juan, Puerto Rico
at the shopping Mall "Plaza de las Americas"
2006, Madrid Spain
A lifesize nativity made entirely of balloons!
2010 Londonderry, New Hampshire
Our "nacimiento" made of pieces bought
at the Christmas Fair on the Plaza Mayor, Madrid, Spain

  1. Hi Heather
    I like how they include the local folk in the nacimientos. I have my basic wooden nativity scene from Guatemala but I like that I can add to it with the different people from the village. Thank you for sharing these scenes.
