Manolita kissing “Jesusito” Nativity figurine / “Jesusito” ( Baby Jesus Figurine) .

This picture was taken on the 24th of December of 2018 at 23:45. It was the last Christmas with my mother. The tradition at home is to kiss the baby Jesus at Midnight before putting the nativity together with Virgin Mary and Saint Joseph and the rest of the Figurines. After the fourth month of chemotherapy treatments for liver cancer, my mother was exhausted at the christmas dinner and my nephew and I took
her and dad to bed. Then we brought the baby Jesus figurine to bed
to continue the tradition. As my mum took it, she kisses repeatedly
and said: “Jesusito, Jesusito.. in the eighteen ( year 2018) you have not behaved very well. So I’m going to give you more kisses this time hoping you are good and let me stay during the nineteen (2019).” during the nineteen.” (Jesusito = Baby Jesus or Little Jesus)
