Nativity Scenes

29 Nov

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. 🙂

    I love it…it makes it even more special because of who’s it was and to have the name of the lady that did it and the date, that’s cool. Looks great!
