A chocoholic's dream
Every year the town of Rute in southern Spain constructs a nativity scene made entirely of chocolate – 1,000kg of the sweet stuff, to be precise – making it the biggest chocolate nativity scene in Spain. From palm trees to turrets, each tiny detail of the huge scene is made from white, milk and dark chocolate.

The town of Tomares in Seville constructs the biggest Playmobil nativity scene in the world – at 140 metres squared, featuring 6,200 characters. It spans thousands of years of history, from Vikings to Romans to the Middle Ages and of course, featuring the Nativity.
