The 20th Annual “Cheches From Around The World” exhibit will be on from 1-6 p.m. Dec. 6 and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Dec. 7.
The annual event is sponsored by the Los Alamos Wards of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Members from the community of most of the churches in Los Alamos participate in the event…Catholic, Lutheran, Methodist, United Church and Episcopal to name a few. It has been an interfaith event since its beginnings in 1994. It was started by The Relief Society organization of the LDS Church, as gifts to the community and coincides with the WinterFest week activities on the first week of December. The exhibit is open to the public and is free of charge at 1867 18th Street (off Sage and 15th Streets).
Several hundred nativity sets are featured in the exhibit. Almost all are one of a kind, many are created by local artists, or from artists selling at local arts and crafts shows throughout the area. Many are from nearby Pueblos, purchased by residents who have traveled to different parts of the world, or handcrafted by a collector.
Creches that are featured in this exhibit are the United States, Russia, Germany, Austria, Mexico, South and Central America, France, Africa, Spain, Italy and many other countries.
