Each year, we begin decorating for Christmas by displaying the Nativity. Our Nativity has a place of honor on the entry hall table as you enter our home. It is the very first Christmas item taken out of the box. After all, the Nativity is the “reason for the season!” This Nativity is special to me…it was a gift from my parents when I was in college. (It was on my Christmas list!) Although it’s not made by Fontanini, it is made in Italy and has the Fontanini “look.” I have added their animals to our Nativity…
Each time I take this Nativity out, it makes me smile! It’s refreshing to me each year!
This picture is “as is.” The kids play with it on a daily basis. They enjoy moving the figurines and animals around…it’s always changing!
Notice the donkey all by himself behind the lamp?
The animals travel all over the entry table!
I adore the colors and hand painted look!
The Holy Family!
It was only fitting that I first show you our Nativity since it the first item to be proudly displayed! And it also plays “Silent Night!!!”
What is your favorite Christmas decoration?
Enjoy the day!
