Christmas Traditions in Malta
Posted by: Bernice Bugeja
Our island of Malta follows the traditional timeline of a Christian Christmas but we have quite a few traditions that make us unique.
The citizens of Malta build and place cribscalled ‘presepji’ throughout the towns in public places and homes. Thecribs are decorated with clay figures of shepherds, street singers and babyJesus. This tradition started in 1826 and the first known crib was found with the Benedictine Nuns.
