Do you put out a Nativity Scene?

I need to purchase a Nativity Scene. My parents always had one in their home and we displayed it during Christmas. I just love them. I have glass Christmas Bulbs that have a gold hanger/stand to display different scenes. One for example is of Mary and Joseph and the baby Jesus. I got these years ago from a party I attended called House of Llyod (Christmas Around the World). I still would like a wood one with moss and all the figurines to go along with it. I will need to look more into this. I am sure you can find these almost anywhere with the Holiday Season in effect.

Simple but poignant

Thats a nice one Maureen. I like it. I just got back from taking a family drive out into the forest. My husband, daughter and I collected some pine branches to make a wreath and also moss. I hope to make a Nativity this year and use some of the moss for the roof.

Yes, I have a nice Nativity scene that I got at the Family Christian Book Store. I would love to have the big yard display but I never see Nativity Scenes on sale, they keep the price up on them.

Hey it is Christ mas, so a Nativity Scene should be displayed but in a way it's not good for it tends to keep Jesus a babe in people's eyes and He's not, He's sitting at the right hand of the Father in all His glory.

But Christmas is a celebration of His birth and Joy to the World.

Yes we have two nativity scenes in our display - Mary, Joseph and babe in one and a manger scene with the wise men in the other. We also have a 6ft long rope light 3 wise men on the fence. Because our display is for the public we put up both religious and secular Christmas displays to suit all visitors who come.

I put a Nativity scene flag outside, and inside I have a Nativity snowglobe that stays out year round.

Yes, I put one up. I guess actually, I put two up. I have one inside that I won many years ago. I (sometimes) almost wish that I never won it because then I'd have the one my mom made. I gave it to my brother and his wife when I won the one I have. I know they both appreciated it. He has since passed away but she puts it out every year...and yes, I know it's selfish. I keep telling myself that I have other things that my mom made. It does help. We also have Mary, Joseph and Jesus outside. Hubby doesn't want me to get anymore anything to put out....not that we have a big display or anything but what we have does take time to put out. We set our statues in front of a tree and have an angel hanging from the tree. We also have two angels beside the scene and two large stars. After all...this is the reason for this wonderful season. I also have a flag to hang on Christmas Day. I've had it for a few years and have yet to hang it out. I guess the reason is that we get so busy. Maybe, this will be the year.
