#606 Les Creche des Enfants

Acquired 2012

Also, from the Noel au Chateau Christmas Store, Riviere-du-Loup, is this Canadian Children's Nativity Set. It was created uniquely in 2000 for the Millennium special edition, and my set is No. 3,809 of 5,000. For the last twenty years, the Oratory of Mount Royal has made a collection of creches that delight the young at heart. This special Millennium edition features nine ingenuous ceramic figurines with a Canadian scene backdrop in a display case made by the handicapped workers of Envol Memphre. The packaging is the work of patients at Hospital Louis H. Lafontaine. Purchased June 29, 2012, $29.95.
