As our yearly tradition to begin the Christmas season, we journeyed to Mepkin Abbey for the monk’s 8th annual Creche festival. They began the event in 2002 as a celebration of Advent and the Christmas. The monks assemble a varied collection of nativity sets representing different races, cultures, and artistic traditions. This year the nativity scenes were constructed of materials ranging from bread dough to glass with artists from almost every continent of the world. For the first time, we took our grandson Peter, age 6, and his presence made the experience even more special. The link below directs you to the slide show with music on YouTube revealing the art of the creche from around the world. Enjoy and Merry Christmas to you—–Jan and Bubber McAlhany, Dewees Island, SC

Have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
