Our First Pessebre
Yesterday we put up our first Pessebre, or nativity scene for this year’s Christmas. Our starter kit came from Sevilla where Rosa’s Uncle Alberto made the manger and the family there (along with Rosa’s parents, who were visiting) bought the figures and the star. Our little apartment has been inundated by the glitter from that star… A few pictures from Alberto’s construction.
We haven’t gotten a caganer yet, but that will follow. Every year we’ll expand on the set, adding more characters and objects important to our lives.
Christmas was my Mom’s favorite holiday. I think this was because it was a time for the whole family to come together. This year is “harder” for me because we have Ainara; I know they would have loved to spend this time together.
