Away in a Manger...

I have collected Nativity scenes for several years, but this one, the one we chose to display this Christmas, is one of my favorites.

It was made in a workshop in Bethlehem in the Holy Land for a shop called The Sunnu Collection, and I bought it five years ago, after looking them in the Sunnu Collection's temporary shop in the Dayton Mall each Christmas-time for five years prior to the purchase. I still delight in this beautiful representation of Christ's Birth, and as I remember why we celebrate Christmas, I also remember the kind man who I bought it from (who passed away three years ago), who let me gaze at and touch the products of his workshop for all those years before I had finally saved enough money to be able to afford to buy this for my home.

Taken without a flash, had held, with ambient living room lighting.

To my friends at 365 Project, I wish you a blessed and happy Christmas (and if you do not observe Christmas, I still wish you happiness and blessings according to your beliefs).
This is really beautiful Berni, I love the simplicity.
