A BEAUTIFUL MANGER

PREVIOUS / NEXT

NERJA by KRISS on 05 january 2016

I grew up as a christian in a place where christmas used to hold a lot of importance and tradition.
Back then, christmas would still be very much of a religious tradition and in the southern part of France (Provence) the manger used to take a much bigger place in people’s living rooms than the christmas tree.
I grew up to many mangers, I even moulded plaster little figurines of the three wise man and painted them (thanks god I have no pictures of that and only my memories to remember how bad that was).
I would go find some moth and create ugly decors with kraft paper.
My beloved godfather used to have a very traditional one with all the characters in Provence (tambourinaire, pescadore etc…).
Back then, my grandmother used to sing a song that meant « Jesus was born in Provence ».

If you have read this far, you understand I kind of know my way around mangers !

In Costa Rica, we barely saw any sign of Christmas coming, only a few tinsels there and then (in creepy Limon bus station), but no signs whatsoever of any manger.
In Florida, we went to St Armands near Sarasota and we saw a rather big manger outside of a church.
It was OK but not very elaborated.

But yesterday, on our first tour in Nerja for months and our first stop in the San Salvador church to give thanks and praises to all our angels and departed ones, we stopped in awe in front of the amazing manger that was on display.

There are no better words to say it than a few photographs and I hope you’ll enjoy them as much as we enjoyed it.
