NO nativity scenes in Madrid for the third year in a row

The traditional Nativity scenes will not be displayed in the Puerta de Alcalá in Madrid for the third year in a row by a decision taken by far-left Mayor Manuela Carmena (Podemos).

The Mayor of the capital of the Kingdom of Spain is accused to be “against the symbols of Christianity,” as one of her political opponent José Luis Martínez Almeida (Partido Popular, centre-right) denounces to ABC.

To protest against this decision, many citizens of Madrid are bringing small Nativity scenes to Puerta de Alcalá, asking Carmena to respect Spain’s Christmas traditions and showing their pride to be Christians.
