the Crèche [nativity scene] pictures thread

If you've got one....
This is in my family since at least 90 years. My grand-parents brought it in Geneva when they moved from St-Gallen. (actually not the christmas tree....)

Re: the Crèche pictures thread

This year, my wife and kids opted for an "alien theme"....

Anyway, twas fun to make, and I quite like the tree....

...and now I'm off with the kids to sing Carols at a retirement home near Basel!!! Yesterday we visited a Alzheimer home in our neighborhood, and it was so nice, the reactions from the elderly there. Since it's so close by, I think we'll try to visit them once a month in the coming year.

Merry Christmas to y'all!!

There's so many words used to call it.....

I saw in my Concise Oxford English Dictionary that it was used as a representation of the nativity scene.


@DavidButler : Yours is really cool.
