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.
This was my attempt at a panorama. Anyway, my mom used to get a piece a year from my grandmother, until this size of Fontanini was discontinued. Each character has a name and a back story from the wise men to the piper at the very edge. It is always put out before the Christmas tree.
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.
P.S. 12 days!
