I don't know what it is about a nativity scene but I love it. I can remember as a child probably 4 or 5 I was given paper nativity scene in primary and I still have it. I didn't put it out this year as it is getting pretty worn. But I still have it and love it.
A few years ago my mother got a beautiful nativity set. It is one of the most beautiful sets I have ever seen. I told Art that I wanted to get a nice set like that someday. I had a few special ones though. My sister made me one and my daughter in law made me a glass block nativity. Art kept his good eye out at the auctions and voila he brought some home. They needed a few minor repairs but that is ok. I now have a nice collection.......8 to be exact.
