holly Shopping mall Nativity scenes...

Curious, is there a Nativity scene in your local shopping mall at Christmas...?

Ours had a life-sized one each year (including live animals) for many years. It was placed in the center of the mall near the huge tree.

Then, around the late 1980s we noticed it was getting quite tattered. The following year the live animals were no more. By Christmastime in the early 1990s it had been pushed out to the exterior of the mall. Then, one year it was gone.

The year we noticed it had disappeared we asked Mall Customer Service if it had been replaced and possibly put in a different spot. We were told we were the first to ask about it and that nobody seemed to care anymore.

With each Christmastime I find myself always hoping to see its return.
