The Making of the Manger

(originally posted on November 7, 2010)

Christmas air is everywhere. OK, so maybe not that much in China wherein Christmas is just another Western holiday that can bring jingles to their cash register but for us Christians, especially the Pinoys, we hold the worldwide recognition for starting our preparations at the onset of the “ber” months.

This year our family decided on the adding a simple Nativity scene for our decoration to bring more awareness to Zek about the birth of our Lord Jesus. And as an added bonus, we let him embarked on a personal experience of preparing and making the manger for the baby Jesus which he excitedly participated in. He glued popsicle sticks together, cut out papers and color them brown.

And so finally, we have our first Nativity scene.
