Hello again! Here Santa Claus in a white Sweden. Everything is fine when Santa Claus is back in town for sure. But did you know that in Spain putting the Bethlehem is one of the most popular traditions of Christmas too? Check it out! I remember when I was a little girl in Spain. The origin of this custom that recreates scenes from the birth of Jesus goes back to the thirteenth century, when on Christmas Eve of 1223 San Francisco de Asis installed a live nativity scene in a cave near the Italian town of Greccio . This Bethlehem was so successful that the tradition spread throughout Italy, coming to Spain in the eighteenth century. Today cribs are made and exhibited in many parts of the world, especially in Spain, Portugal, France, Italy, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, South America and the United States.
Viva all ways of celebrating Christmas worldwide and Feelgood!
FELIZ NAVIDAD by Miss Lopez
