The Ancient Nativity

Every year during the Christmas season the morning sun in the east fortuitously shines through the glass of the transom window above our front door. The Nativity Scene that permanently resides above our door is projected during the month of December across the room onto the door of our coat closet. Perfect timing!

  1. The ancient tradition of the nativity play dates back to the time when illiterate parishioners, with the help of sculptural compositions in a church, narrated the biblical story of the birth of a little Jesus in Bethlehem. Later, when the city grew and the number of people has increased, the nave began to be set in front of the cathedral. Even further, they arranged costume performances with the use of bright costumes, sign attributes, puppet theatre and songs-tales about the birth of Jesus.We try to keep this tradition alive and to represent it in our souvenirs.Includes a ram, a cow, a goat, three shepherds, three kings, an angel, Mary, Joseph.
