Christmas In SOUTH AMERICA|
Throughout South America Christmas is celebrated in a deeply religious way. The main focus of the season throughout the continent is
the presepio ("the manger"). Often a whole room is devoted to the presepio display, complete with landscape and tiny figures made to scale.
Though the central feature is the manger at Bethlehem, elaborate scenes will include hills full of shepherds gazing upon the heavenly host, the Wise
Men crossing the desert on their camels, water mills, grottos, electric trains, and even sailboats on the sea.
