byeokay wait this more um I have a diseaseit's called Sophia can't leave an emptyspot empty it was really bothering me itwas having a cup of coffee in thekitchen and I figured the wait a secondif I remove this I having for thenativity scene so that's exactly whereI'm going to put it let me pull it outokay so if you remember two years agocause last year I couldn't find it rightso two years ago I had it put snow andstuff so guess what better remove thesnow even though the snow man because itjust doesn't fit that decor and Yorgathat I even puts little snow on thewindows really hey on the doors oh man Ipicked I won all the weight so I'm gonnaremove all of this because I don't wantthe snowI want bare wood I feel it as muchbetter especially with this now I've hadone of those filament lights in it anddidn't work and then so that don't leavethe battery in your stuff it's socorroded so I'm gonna have to get a newset of those yeah they don't work okaydid you pin off all right so put thechurch right here this is a birdcagethat mom and my family we were lookingfor something to do a nativity scenewith so we're so dis years ago mom and Iprobably I don't know seven or eightyears ago and we said perfect we'regonna use that so let me pull out mylittle figurines and I'm going toassemble my nativity scene now thefamily has two and if you know thechannel you've seen it before I don'tneed that they are clay and they arehand-painted they are by a brand calledCarbonell and they still existhere are the three kings they're nothere yet- come on the Epiphany but let me showyou now I'm going to show them all toyou but this is what they look like sothey hand-painted by a brand calledcarbonelle and they're quite somethingelse and that's basically what mostFrench people would have that so when Iwas a kid we used to put the three kingsin the back and then we used to put babyJesus in the back - because it's notborn yet right but we have a whole bunchof a little figurine so the goal is tocreate like a little village and there'ssome people there from South of Francefrom Tomas there's some people who havecomplete sets and they come up with newones every year and some of them likethis guy with the pumpkin is a regularthat pretty much most people have sosome of them they just recreate andeverybody has them but it's supposed tobe a village in South France andProvence that depicts the birth ofChrist and that's basically whateverybody has over there now granted Ihaven't been I haven't spent a Christmasin France since 1998 I think so they mayhave something else now I don't know butI know that they still do though so Iknow people still collect them this isone of my favorite this is the one ofthe little village priests and usually Ihave him at the door while comingeverybody in but there's some folks thathave hundreds of ESP be Jesus you go inthe back because we're not ready for youthey have hundreds of them and then theyhave them in very tall figurines andthose who have clothes on them plus ABtype clothing here's the angel I don'thave a lot and this is actually thesecond one that we purchased when wemoved to South France the original onemy sister hadand that's the one that she used to havewhen she was born until I came along andwe moved to suffer France that one sowas purchased at that time so this oneis from when did we move 78 so this oneis from 1978[Music]dump and here's my Nativity so on the25thI'll have William put baby Jesus rightthere in the middle and then when theEpiphany comes I'll pull out the threekings they are still on their journey sothat is itI found a spot for it and it's perfectit does go with the decor so yep okayI'm done see you later byebut this is my favorite holiday it's achance that over nooncuz I missed you so I'm letting go ofeverything but you these are the goodtimes with you baby this here is
