Near Nice, is Lucéram a medieval village with its 400 nurseries and it is the village of christmas nurseries. It is the annual crossing point for tens of thousands of visitors from around the world. Attracted by hundreds of representations of the Nativity, which was crowned by the pastoral shepherds (live nativity scene) and “Ouferta” an ancient ceremony during which the shepherds come to the midnight mass at the church which offer lambs and fruits. Perched on a rocky outcrop, Lucéram with its Italian rococo church is the perfect representation of a village-size santons. The circuit nurseries contain more than 400 nativity scenes which are made by the locals.  There are many places  to discover nurseries; outside the front porches, on the edge of the windows, in shop windows, on a pile of wood on the inside, then baked in oil mill, the old tools museum, church Ste Marguerite and to the Col St Roch at Camp Silver. The smallest set was made in the heart of half nuts and the largest measures ten meters long.  This was the case until a priest, created a nomadic crib in his car! Christmas time in the County of Nice is also the symbolic gestures of the return of light. Traditionally, it is the time people used to clean their homes, clean the sheep barns, stables and cowsheds, renew furniture and utensils, and complete the cycle with a symbolic gesture. In the evening of the 24th December, in the fireplace, the old fire is extinguished. The eldest of the family gives the younger child a brand to turn a new fire with fruitwood logs sprinkled with a few drops of wine. This expression is a symbol of Eve. That evening a meager meal is made of a big a meatless supper with cod in a sweet and sour sauce or lean herb ravioli. Then people go to midnight mass, not forgetting to raise the corners of the three superimposed layers on the table, so that the devils does not cling to it and devouring the thirteen desserts which are a Provencal tradition. The next day, finally, lunch will play emphasis to meats of all kinds including sausages and lamb.
