Crèche

This is the current nativity scene inside Notre-Dame de Versailles church. Of course, the Child Jesus hasn't arrived yet... To all of you who celebrate Christmas, I wish a very joyful and serene Christmas Eve!

Voici la crèche de l'église Notre-Dame de Versailles. Bien évidemment, l'enfant Jésus n'est pas encore arrivé. A tous ceux qui célèbrent Noël, je souhaite un joyeux et serein réveillon de Noël !

Well, then, Mary is very self-disciplined. The creche was a big deal in our home when I was a child: strips of thin wood, colored felt, plastic figurines, a single tree-ornament-size incandescent bulb. The materials weren't the important part.

Wonderful manger scene.

A beautiful scene indeed, awaiting the birth of the Child.
Many good wishes from western Canada to you, for Christmas and the coming year.

I have a neighbor started her Christmas shopping today. Don't think she'll have a particularly serene holiday. Mais, je t'espere une bonne et calme fête de Noël.

And the myth lives on! :-) It is very pretty. I wonder if Mary and Joseph speak French?

I know sheep go "Baaaa." Maybe that's where "Bah humbug" came from - frustrated sheep who have to stand in the same place for hours at nativity scenes the world over?

Just kidding.

Merry Xmas Eve!

It never occurred to me that Jesus would not be in the scene before Christmas. In every creche I've ever seen, he is already there. Interesting. Joyeaux Noel to you!
