|Nativity, Church Bethlehem (KJ's 2008 trip)|
I love Nativity Scenes.
I grew up in a household which, sadly, did not have one (and I will not get into all that drama in this blog).
I have made sure my girls have Nativity sets in almost every room. Over the years, the girls have collected the Precious Moments (I can't believe the price of this collector edition), Playmobil, Fisher Price Little People and Schleich versions. They love to them all.
In our kitchen, we also have a Wallie's vinyl nativity set up.
Of all our sets, my favourite is this humble, olive wood which Mr. KJ and I brought back from our 2008 trip to Bethlehem. We place it under the Christmas tree.
Birth Cave where a tourist group launched into the most beautiful rendition of Silent Night that I have ever heard.
We also have several other interesting Nativity scenes, like this small one from Mexico.
Christmas Story. It is Toronto's longest running Nativity pageant. Evangeline Hope tried to fill the shoes of baby Jesus in 2008.
Baby shepherds are so cute.
Check out the parade.
