Chandler Man Offers Unique Nativity Scene

A Chandler man has once again delighted his neighbors with his exquisite nativity scene display.

For twenty five years now, Rev. Jorge Rodriguez Eagar has spread the Christmas spirit and reminded his fellow community of the true meaning of Christmas.

Each year, he organizes every detail of his Posada, known as “lodging” in Spanish, creating a Christmastime tradition that is shared across many Mexican households throughout the Phoenix metro area. It symbolizes Mary and Joseph’s long journey for shelter before the birth of Jesus.

Eagar’s Nativity scene, known as nacimiento, boasts over 1,600 pieces, making it a huge display of figurines and models showcasing the story of Jesus’s birth. His Nacimiento features a variety of characters, and takes up a lot of space in his garage, with three levels on the display.

Eagar’s display has become a true tradition for his neighbors and the community. If you are interested in viewing the Nacimiento before February 2, you may email Eagar at [email protected] to set up a time for a viewing.

I am a multimedia journalist and proud graduate from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication. I am originally from Minnesota, and I love learning about my second home, Arizona, and all of it's awesome communities through my contributions to My Local News! When I was a little girl, I created my own "newspaper" for my neighborhood and spent all my time writing, printing and sending each edition to my loyal subscribers (AKA my family and neighbors!). Now, it's a dream come true to be able to write everyday and have a positive impact on communities through my reporting. In my free time, I love to travel, hike, cook and spend time with my family and friends.
