Last Christmas we soaked up some sun from southern Portugal.
As we journeyed into the mountain ranges just north of Faro we came to a town called Sáo Bras De Alportel.
The church and the council must have some agreement here as key roundabouts in the town were decorated with nativity scenes.
When we saw Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus I could not resist this photo.
Back in England I just could not resist converting this photo into our 2005 Christmas Card Greeting. So printed off 50. I hope you agree it is better than buying a couple of tacky boxes from Asda-Walmart.
