This will be our first Christmas in San Clemente and we will be looking for some different decorations and ways that the locals celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ. While walking around town over the past several weeks we noticed that a crèche was being constructed. This one is a bit different and had the start of waterways which I have never seen used in a nativity set before. But I guess this being a community built on the water, with fishing as it main industry waterways were a logical choice. Over the weekend things were being added lights, a full set of animals and even a very sparkly back drop.
I am sure it will look much better at night all lit up but this was a very creative setting. Our amigo Fredy told us the town Christmas tree will be up on the 15th.
