Nativity Scenes from around the World

Belleville’s Cathedral of Saint Peter is currently hosting a display of nativity scenes from around the world. It was the first time we had seen such a display, and, even though we’ve been in Belleville for eight years now, the first time we had been in the Cathedral. It was quite a treat!

I was amazed how the same subject (Christ’s birth), could be displayed in such different ways from country to country. We saw jewelry, plates, gingerbread, candles, eggs, an igloo, and even a Fanta can nativity! Each one was different, and each beautiful in its own way. It was wonderful seeing Christ’s birth proclaimed across the world in different ways!
