Christmas is a time of traditions and rituals for many people, and in our home one of these is the setting up of a Nativity scene in our lounge. In the weeks leading up to Christmas we use that scene to remember and re-tell the story of Christmas. Our children place the figures of the wise men in different parts of the house, and each day move them closer to where the nativity scene is, eventually arriving there on Christmas day. This year we have two Nativity Scenes set up – the second one (below) was brought home by our 20 year old daughter from her trip to Central America earlier this year!
To all readers of “Derek’s Blog” – a very blessed Christmas for 2006!
