Kid looks annoyed at the bagpipes.
Which begs the question, why are there bagpipes?
Where's the bagpipes ? And, they are an ancient traditional instrument in all of Europe even the Greeks.

Didn't Pope Benedict VXI say that there were no anigamals?

Shepherd on the right. Forgive my ignorance, I thought bagpipes were strictly Gaelic. Can't imagine the Greeks playing them, let alone shepherds from Bethlehem
I love the large creches you see in the Mediterranean cultures. I was blown away the first time I saw one, way before I ever thought of being Catholic. It was in the Cathedral church in a small historic Venezuelan village ate the foot of the Andes. The creche took up about 60 by 20 feet or more. It was the entire village in miniature, and was all lit up so you could see it right out the front door of the church. People came flocking in from the whole area to see it on Christmas.
What no Bernini or Michaelangelo? I am sorry for that.

No, he never said that at all.
