Feliz Natal!

The smaller ones are far more traditional, reflecting the original design created by St. Francis of Assisi in 1223. The simplest ones will just have Jesus,the Virgin Mary, and Joseph, but as you can see from the wonderful collection created by primary schools in the parish of Castro Marim most also have one or more of the following; a donkey and ox or sheep to represent the simplicity of the place where Jesus was born, Angels, Star of Bethlehem, Shepherds and the Three Magi – Melchior, Gaspar and Baltazar.

When in Portugal you will find me walking, cooking, photographing, reading and of course blogging. In England it is pretty much the same with the addition of catching up with family, friends and organising a festival.

    1. A little bit of cloud this morning and a cold wind but looks like will be warm later 😎
      No guests (thank goodness!!) for the Eve but still plenty of food and fireworks. How about you?
