What you’ll learn
For Spaniards, assembling the nativity scene is like decorating the Christmas tree. Join Tour Director Manuel for this virtual experience as he shows off his own nativity scene and explains the cultural significance behind this practice. This live experience will take you into his home in Spain as you learn about the Christian tradition of assembling a nativity scene. True nativity scenes in Spain include not only the cradle with Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, but also a whole host of people who have their own backstories and traditions. Celebrate Christmas the Spanish way by gathering around the nativity with Manuel during this virtual experience. Then, learn more about the tours we offer to this region.
Manuel has been a Tour Director with Go Ahead Tours for six years. The son of a military man, Manuel has spent his life traveling around, leading to a career as a Tour Director. When he’s not on the road, Manuel is an avid painter. He’s loved his family’s nativity scene since he was a kid and is excited to share this tradition with you!
