The Christmas decorations of Mexico vary by region but are always colorful and festive whether made of tin, paper, wood, textiles or clay.

Do you like the idea of a portable, fold up, painted tin nativity scene? I do! This super ingenious nacimiento was handmade in Mexico City and comes with the entire scene ready to go. When the season is over, just fold everyone down and presto, close the lid and store until next year. This group features a lovely scene on the underside of the lid which serves as a backdrop to the nativity. For more info on Mexico's tin folk art traditions, click here!
