UGears Nativity Scene
There are few images as iconic and classic during Christmas time than the nativity scene: Baby Jesus lays in his manger Mary and Joseph look on. The mechanical UGears Nativity Scene model kit deftly captures this image and includes the Three Wise Men bearing gifts and a sweet angel floating above, heralding the little babe's arrival. A swirling shooting star hangs overhead for added delight and wonder. The interior of the barn houses a simple mechanism relying on gears for movement, all of which are visible for a unique, interesting, and eye-catching look.
Celebrating Christmas Around the World
Las Posadas is a festival celebrated across Mexico and some parts of the United States from December 16th through December 24th. Los Posadas commemorates the journey that Joseph and Mary made from Nazareth to Bethlehem in search of safe refuge for baby Jesus to be born. Each evening during the festival, a child dressed as an angel leads a procession through town. They stop to visit homes to read passages of scripture, and to sing Christmas Carols. On the final day of the festival, children break open star-shaped piñatas which are full of candy and toys!
