Crèche scenes in Italy

Every church, chapel, and town in Italy has a crèche scene.  Sometimes an entity can have multiple crèche scenes.  They are always fun to examine.

Last week in Vernona, I saw this crèche  in the duomo there.  It is a sweet crèche and reminds me to tell something I have only seen in Italy. The figure of the baby Jesus is always left out of the scene until midnight on December 25.  Only then can the baby be added, for indeed, he was “just born.”
