The Nativity scene is very much part of UK Christian celebrations and school plays but these (rather poor) photos were taken, not on Christmsa Day but Epiphany which is the 12th day of Christmas and the day that the Magi (the three wise men) visited Christ.
Christmas celebrations vary around Europe and in Spain and the Canaries Epiphany, which is more or less ignored in the UK apart from the panic of taking the decorations down, is the main celebration and gifts are given – appropriate as the Magi brought the gifts we all know about.
These photos were taken at Puerto de la Cruz in Tenerife as the crowds flock to the square where the scene is re-enacted with the Magi arriving.
Of course, it ends with fireworks. And a squad car!
