Schwibbogen



.. say what?

Schwibbogen.  Shwi (short i)- BOW-gen (gen as in again).

I know you've seen it before. Maybe you just haven't heard of its name.

It's a candle arch made of wood.  It started over 250 years ago in the Erzgebirge region in Germany.

Some light up with candles. Others with lights.

Below is the one I own:

The nativity scene is one of the most popular scenes, for obvious reasons.
