Reading the Christmas story and setting up the nativity scene were always special parts of our family’s Christmas tradition from the time we had babies. In fact, when the kids were very young my husband made one out of cardboard so they could play with it. They loved that!
This year I gave my daughter Courtney and her husband ours so they could carry on this meaningful tradition together! But just because we’re empty nesters and gave our daughter the nativity scene doesn’t mean this tradition is over for us!
A follower on Instagram thought of me when she saw this darling blue and white nativity set and sent me a link to see it. I just loved it and felt this one belonged at our new home. I fell in love with the camel and little sheep. You know I’m a sucker for cute animals. :)
So this Christmas we are honoring the meaning of the season and our tradition by setting up this lovely new nativity scene in the main room of our house.
Do you set up a nativity scene for Christmas? What are some of your favorite traditions? I’d love to hear…send me a message here on Instagram!
