LUCERAM, France – Christmas cribs filled with nativity scenes have been dotted about the streets of the southern French town of Luceram.
The festive display entered its 20th edition this year, according to the French tourism office, and sees some 450 examples being exhibited throughout the medieval village and neighboring Peira-Cava.
Epa photos showed cribs of varying sizes and styles perched on window ledges and nestled in nooks.
Nativity scenes are traditionally exhibited for the Christian celebration of Christmas, which celebrates the birth of Jesus, and feature figures depicting the baby Jesus, his mother Mary and his father Joseph.
Other characters, such as angels, animals, shepherds and the three wise men, are sometimes included.
Locals and visitors alike will be able to see the cribs until Jan. 7.
