Creches from around the world

-A A +A

The 19th Annual Crèches From Around the World, an annual exhibition featuring nativity sets collected by members of the many churches in Los Alamos, will be from 1-7 p.m. Dec. 7 and from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Dec. 8, at 1967 18th St. (off 15th and Sage Street).
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Los Alamos Ward, sponsors the event. The event is free and refreshments will be served throughout the day.
The crèche, a French term, is the portrayal of the nativity through figurines of people and animals that often include the setting of a stable or a village scene.
The exhibit features crèches from more than 100 countries, collected by residents of Los Alamos, or by members of the LDS church, who have served missions in many parts of the world.
Crèches featured represent South and Central America, most of Europe, many from most of the United States, as well as many from most pueblos in the area; many Asian countries; most African countries; and many hand crafted by artists in nearby communities.
The nativity figures are made from a wide variety of materials, to include: wood, ceramic, papier-mâché, various nuts, straw, glass, fabrics, wood, stone, clay and bamboo.
The Créche Show is part of the annual WinterFest week, the first week of December.
