Okay, by now maybe some of you are realizing how much I love Christmas. I realized that I have made a few Christmas posts, but none about the reason why we celebrate. So, I will change that this morning. Here is my huge nativity set.
This nativity set belong to my great-grandmother (Mimi). She passed away several years ago and my mom got her nativity set, I have sinced talked my mother into letting me “borrow” it. (I’ve had it for 4 years now.) This nativity is handpainted ceramic. Mabel Fonger painted it in 1961. We have no idea who Mabel is, but she did a wonderful job with the set.
Here is Joseph, Mary and Baby Jesus.
I know, I know, my nativity scene isn’t Biblicaly accurate. I usually don’t put the wisemen with the nativity (they are usually on a table or something on the other side of the room), but I didn’t have anywhere else to put them this year. So, please forgive me this once. 🙂
