The hut in this photo is in the middle of the woods along one of the walks and every year at christmas time, someone sets up a Nativity scene of life-sized wooden figures, complete with wooden sheep and donkeys. There are decorations and votive candles and through Advent and until the 6th January, the crib remains as it was on the first day, untouched and cared for. The woods are dotted with little cribs here and there, made by children from the local Waldkindergartens (Forest Kindergarten) using paper, wood, random figures from old cribs and of course votive candles. Each one lovingly tended everyday. I love coming across one of these little treasures; I think they're sweet.
I'm posting this after the cards have been sent as I don't want to spoil the fun for the rellies.
Thanks for stopping by and reading my blog. Your time and comments are always appreciated. Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous 2012.
