France: The traditional nativity crib is a common sight in households across the world at Christmas, but the French take the "crèche" as it is called, to new levels. It's not just the usual characters like Baby Jesus, Mary and Joseph, who make an appearance in the French crib, but all kinds of figures, (known as Santons), including vegetable sellers, bakers, men selling roasted chestnuts, local dignitaries, in fact anyone you can think of.
