It is Spanish tradition to make a recreation of Belem during the Christmas. The three Wise men offer the presents to Jesus.

One friend has won the prize in the village this year.



He has made every thing, the palm, the houses, wall...The day, the night...

in the US there is a very vocal minority who have worked very hard to keep anything "Christian" out of view.  they do not want any public grounds or buildings to display Christian Christmas decorations. some even want Christmas trees removed.  of course other religions and celebrations are fine.  it comes from a gross misinterpretation of the 1st amendment to our constitution which reads;

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
