To this day, Nativity scenes are the greatest reminder of Christmas. The Christmas spirit truly fills your home as soon as you put out the manger scene of the birth of Our Lord and Savior. Nativity scenes remind the members of the family what Christmas is truly about. Placing the nativity scene in our homes is to welcome God’s everlasting light and the infinite gift of love that God gave us at Christmas.
Nativity scenes were first created by Saint Francis of Assisi after his return from the Holy Land. They have since become part of the Christmas story the world over. Perhaps his first was a wooden nativity scene made out of Bethlehem olive wood, as ours are!
All of our Nativity scenes and sets are intricately-engraved from olive wood to express the wonder of the birth of our Lord. They can be placed under your Christmas tree, and can make a perfect gift to be placed under the Christmas tree to remind us of the true reason for this season.
