During these days we were seeing many ideas to decorate the Christmas tree, but if there is a true protagonist of these holidays is not the tree but the Crib or Bethlehem. For this article we have had the help of the association of experts in Christmas cribs, belenistas.eswho have guided us a little bit about the trends in Christmas Nativity Scenes or Nativities. And is that this is an indispensable piece in any Christmas decoration (in many countries this scene is literally called “birth”). In fact, on this Christian feast, we celebrate, precisely, the Birth of Jesus. This scene of Mary, Joseph and the Child Jesus is often accompanied by the Magi. The idea of this article is to share ideas of original nativity scenes for Christmasfor those who are looking for something out of the ordinary.
Here are some of them ideas for original cribscribs or nativity scenes. For those who are a little tired of the typical births we’ve seen since we’ve had use of reason. Some time ago we shared ideas for alternative Christmas treesand this time it’s the turn of the births.
