I think she was making the body from cardboard and newspaper.
For those of you who wonder how Christ disappeared from Christmas, come down to Ecuador one year and bolster your spirits. The Christian (mostly Catholic) spirit is alive and well.

While the weather makes it hard to believe that Christmas is only two days away, the spirit of Christmas is building quietly. (Abetted by creepy doll commercials, on TV. The dolls have hard plastic faces, but can do all manner of things; crawl, stand up, talk, somersault etc. To be honest, they kind of freak me out.) I'll assuage myself with El Pase del Nino Viajero, tomorrow. Nothing like an all day parade to buoy the spirits. Hope this also lifts you up!
With Christmas so fast upon us, let us wish you the very best of the season, however you celebrate. May the light of hope shine brightly on you and yours and may we learn to accept each other with respect, dignity and, above all else, peace.
