Nativity scenes are another important element of Filipino Christmas decorations. In past times Nativity scenes were principally found in churches and were made to be life sized. Nowadays these scenes may be smaller. They usually appear for the first time in churches on December 16. Nativity scenes may be found in Filipino homes as well. Filipinos call the Nativity scene a belén, the Spanish word for Bethlehem. Like the people of many other nations, Filipinos place the infant Jesus figurine in his Nativity scene crib on the evening of December 24.
