Christmas Traditions 2

Our second Christmas tradition is putting out our nativities (Obviously I didn’t post these in order of importance). Mom’s main nativity is pretty ornate and mine is very simple.

Yes, mine is as big as it looks. It’s large, simple and embodies simplicity and quiet reflection.

What kind of nativity do you have? Small, simple, big, ornate? Several? We have others that have been passed down in the family, but I picked our favorites.
