Late season nativity

One of our Christmas traditions has been to visit various churches in Cologne during Advent and the time to Candlemas to see the Nativities 1.

In years past this “hike” was augmented with a Weihnachtsmarkt visit and some Glühwein.

This year 2, of course, we didn’t.

Today, on a walk in one of the Veedel 3 we don’t normally visit, we went into a new-gothic church and found this fairly modern and somewhat naive nativity.
