Portal de Belen de las Canteras & Feliz Navidad!

A little while back, I posed some photos of the making of the sandy Nativity Scene on the beach Las Canteras in Las Palmas. Nativity scenes are a big part of Advent and Christmas preparations in Spain, and of all the ones I have seen in Spain, this is my favorite. (I saw it last year too.) Anyhow, it's a great work of art and well, here is the finished result! 
Streets of Betlehem:

Offerings by the Three Wise Men / Los Reyes Magos:

The Nativity Scene:


It's Christmas Eve, the biggest day of the Christmas celebrations in Norway. I am back "home", it's been snowing non stop these last few days, and everything is just so postcard perfect outside. Gløgg is in my cup (Scandinavian version of mulled wine, though without alcohol) and the Christmas tree is decorated. 
It's Christmas. Feliz Navidad todos, Merry Christmas, God Jul!
We'll talk again in the next year. Enjoy the holidays everyone!

I posted about some Nativity Scenes in Barcelona last year too if you want to have a look! The one at Plaza Sant Jaume (Of course with a Caganer!), and the one at the Catedral de Barcelona, with live geese, hens and fish!
