It's all preparations this week.
The nativity scene will look like this
Meanwhile, during Advent the figures of Mary and Joseph (and the donkey) are being passed from house to house to stay overnight with different familiies who have a chance to talk about what Christmas means. The figures were brought to us at the Rectory at 9 o'clock last night on day 18 of their journey, and I took them to a young family late this afternoon before I went to Evening Prayer. (It's an adaptation of the Mexican custom of "Posada".)
