Christmas Day

Christmas is a highly celebrated religious festivity in this Catholic country. The season is celebrated to its full on the Islands; nativity scenes, displays of cribs, carol services and other events are organised in each locality. Cribs are positively everywhere, from private houses to small chapels.  Visiting cribs is a popular activity at Christmas time and many Islanders spend time going round the ‘presepju’. Some are very elaborate, and the figures move around mechanically, obviously the work of dedicated craftsmen.
