I collect nativity scenes or nacimientos as they are called in Spanish.

It's not that I am super religious but to me they are interesting cultural symbols.

They can be made from a variety of materials. This one pictured is oak, but I also have nativity scenes made out of tin, clay and straw.

In Mexico, as in other countries, they set up nativity scenes in the home. I have a whole shelf of them.
