813. “Live” Nativity Scene in Montanja

Driving around last night we stumbled upon the most awesome pesebre (nativity scene) we’d ever seen… as if the scene itself wasn’t enough…  this one has live goats, geese, sheep, a chicken, a hen!!! Naturally we had to stop and get the full story from its creator, Fabian Martina, who was busy feeding the animals (on loan from a friend through January 6, 2013).

Fabian tells us his pesebre is constructed from a large wad of colored construction paper (makeshift boulders), a TV stand, and potted local plants (milón di seru, vines, aloe, etc)… a long-standing tradition… but the animals are a 2012 addition! (and he swears they don’t wake him up at night)

Fabian’s entire yard is a veritable tropical Christmas wonderland… bringing holiday cheer and quirk to the entire neighborhood of Montanja while simultaneously raising money for community development! Visit this amazing pesebre [first left when you hit the Montanja soccer field] through January 6, 2013 and support this wonderful emerging neighborhood.
