Inuit Creche

Posted by
Eric Cousineau (Sherwood Park, Canada) on 29 December 2011 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

Even the Inuit from the far north of the continent have found a way to celebrate the arrival of the Christ child in their own way.

Wine is constant proof that God loves us and loves to see us happy.

I don't think of myself as a role model. I do try to live in a compassionate, considerate and positive way. The only advice I can offer is to find what you love to do, find the joy in it, and express yourself through your passion.

@mo.langel: Merci beaucoup Mo! Oui, bien que chaque culture célèbre le même événement, la naissance du Christ, ils dépeignent la crèche en fonction de leurs propres traditions et la culture! Je suis heureux que vous appréciez la série! ;-)

It's always interesting to see nativities from different cultures. Even in our differences there is a commonality. Very well done.
