For past two years have hosted a "Nativity Open House" with depictions from many countries/cultures. I especially like the cultural reference of the hat shop below. Just as many of us learn the story of room made for the Holy Family in the animal's shelter, this shows room made for the birth and adoration of Jesus where a family makes their livelihood.
I now have three retablos and each is unique and beautiful. The workmanship is exquisite and I will enjoy displaying them at Christmas for many years.
