Merry Christmas with a Guatemalan Nativity Scene

Rudy Giron: Antigua Guatemala &emdash; Merry Christmas with a Guatemalan Nativity Scene

As I have explained before, Nacimientos are Nativity (Navidad in Spanish) scenes shrines made to celebrate during the December until Christmas or Navidad in Spanish. On December 8th, the Virgin of the Immaculate Conception is celebrated and with this the ‘Religious Christmas Season’ is officially started. For those who are not well verse in Catholic imagery, myself included, normally the Nativity scene shows Mary, Joseph, and Baby Jesus along with a few animals.

With this simple nacimiento I wish you and your family a Merry Christmas!
