Christmas has many symbols. The one that is truly the reason for this special day is a simply three figures, Mary, Joseph and Baby Jesus.
Nativity sets come in an amazing array of styles and sizes. Last year we visited a display of Nativities at small Art studio in downtown Chicago. It was a private collection of sets from around the world and different areas of our country. Each set was very unique to the area of the artist that created them.
During this season we have several different version on display. Photos show four; a simple outside set, a traditional manger with a shepherd and kings, a collectable set and a small hand-carved wooden piece.
