This drabble is set in the same term as Visitors but disregards that totally as I haven’t read it! It was inspired by my trip to Innsbruck last month, and especially by the Christmas cribs in the museum of Tyrolean folk art. In the Tyrol there is a long tradition of locally themed cribs – the biblical characters are found in a Tyrolean style building and they are attended by people in local dress and local animal species rather than those more traditionally seen in crib scenes.

I’m afraid I haven’t had the time to make this as long as I would like, or to fact check it properly. Hopefully no error too glaring has snuck through.
