belen


Every year Vitoria puts a giant Nativity scene in a park near my home. This year I took Coco with me to check it out. Lets just say The Cocster left it a little more authentic... She almost got my arrested. (Stop laughing Joyce!)
Sending you warm hugs!

It's a pretty scary looking Nativity. What do they do for Easter?

Ian said...

I just remembered what they do at Easter: those Ku Klux Klan processions.

These are wonderful! You should make a replica of Coco and put it out there, doing his thing ;-)

likeschocolate said...

I agree with Flowtops! Some of the figures are kind of scary looking though.

Bad Coco! Bad.
I'm sure that the life-size nativity scene is quite a site. Thanks for the always-inspiring photography . . . I see nativity scene parts in my weekend.

Oh no!!! :) Better Coco than your husband!

Those figurines are very interesting!

Joyce said...

Oh Jane I am laughing!! If it isn't the camera, it is the dog that will draw attention to the police!! OK maybe I am a little weird- but I actually think they look kind of cool. xo

Janis said...

!!! Good for Coco, mustn't hold that stuff in :^)
Very dramatic nativity there too ;^)
Besos!

Hahaha, it was the dog statue that made Coco do it. No self-respecting dog could leave that statue unmarked!

I think the statues are a bit scary looking, too, but I think it's neat that they do a life-sized nativity at Christmas.

Loree said...

I love how you've taken the photos. The figures look like they are alive.

Marta said...

Beautiful photos, as usual! I love Spanish nativity scenes, here, in Barcelona, we also have the Christmas log and the caganer, very strange but typical things at the same time :)
