Joy to the world

I remember that, when we we're kids, me and my sister often played with the figurines of my grandma's nativity scene. (Especially the angel was very popular).

But lately Christmas seems to be becoming more a commercial than a christian holiday with Santa Claus taking over the place of baby Jesus. A bit a shame especially with these lovely designed nativity sets on sale.

– Girard nativity set, House Industries

My mom gave me this inch/inch ornament that has a complete nativity scene carved out of the inside!

Wow Erin, that sounds really amazing!

The 2nd one is amazing--the colors, the shapes--too clever and yet still with enough familiar elements to refrain from bucking tradition *too* much. Very cool.
