The Nativity scene made from snow near Rainer’s chalet in the High Tatras is a bit smaller this year. Chalet manager Peter Petras stated the lack of snow during winter as the reason.
“There was a lack of snow in the beginning so we went for smaller measurements,” Petras said, as quoted by the TASR.
Usually, the chalet measures 4.5 metres by 5 metres and a height of 3.5 metres. This year, it is 4 metres by 3 metres. The inner composition remains the same – holy family, baby Jesus, Saint Joseph and the Virgin Mary.
The shuttering for the Nativity Scene was prepared in advance, but, there was a strong wind that broke the foundations of the construction and that is why they have to start over.
