$5 nativity tradition
Can you believe someone would give this away? I found it at the thrift store for $5. It is worth so much more than that to me. It is larger than your typical creche~Joseph is about 8 inches tall. Each piece is larger than my hands. When I was growing up, my father put a small light bulb in the stable of our nativity. He left the light on all month long until Christmas so that we would always remember the light of the Savior. I thought that was one of our best traditions. I am displaying mine on my mantle with an electric candle next to it as a reminder to keep the light of Christ in our home thoughout the holidays.
Don't forget, my "Winter Magic" giveaway is still going on~if you haven't yet signed up to be a follower, this is a great opportunity!
