Alvaro in Spain


Alvaro, nine, lives in Galapagar, near Madrid. In this Christmas period, Alvaro and all of his family are building a manger for the Christ child in their house. It is a very important tradition in Spain and many people like Alvaro visit the markets to look for subjects and decorations to create their mangers. This year, Alvaro wants to make a spectacular manger. But, he has no intention of canceling his other plans! Soccer and video games with his friends, bicycling with his Daddy, riding lessons; he has a fully planned and busy holiday ahead. But he still spends half of his days building the manger. He paints the decorations, installs the table to put it on and places all the figurines inside. When the crèche is ready, he simply has to light it up and wait for the Magi to arrive!
