nativity scenes: St. Nicholas Square


This is one of what I call the "classic" nativity scenes.

The barn with fake moss? check
loose figurines so you can change the scene? check
white people less one dark skinned wise man? check
2 barnyard animals? check
shepherd holding a lamb and an extra sheep for good measure? check
angel? no. wait, NO ANGEL.

I love it. It's 11 pieces and I got it at Kohl's after Christmas one year for half price. This is one of the lucky ones that made it to the mantle for Christmas 2009. I love the colors, the dark reds and greens with just a little gold.

the baby Jesus. fair haired and legs crossed. hand opened and out stretched, inviting.
