Day 18- Setting up the Nativity

January 5, 2013 No Comments

The best day of my Christmas season is the day we are Setting up the Nativity. I try to set it up before I put up any other Christmas decorations, because really, this is what Christmas is all about.

I have two nativities. One that is my precious one which is extremely fragile and one for the kids to play with, but did you ever notice how kids don’t want the thing you’ve bought just for them? They are constantly drawn to the beautiful ceramic nativity. The other night, my youngest daughter, was seen playing at the nice nativity. After she left baby Jesus was missing. I didn’t think much of it, but when I got her out of bed the next morning there he was hiding under her pillow. What is it about that holy baby, that we all want? It reminded me to hold on, to come closer and be a little more like my 4 yr old this Christmas season.

What traditions does your family have around setting up the nativity? Please share!
