As you read through this book I know you’ll be looking at or thinking about your Nativity in a way you never have before. My nativity is probably the very first Christmas decoration I put up. It goes up on my mantle and we’re all always so very excited to see there.
I have pieces of this nativity. I think it is so beautiful and love the detail, I also love that I don’t have to worry about the kids touching it, it isn’t breakable, so while I prefer for it to be out and not being played with if the kids are touching it or handling it while we’re doing our 7 nights outlined in the book I don’t have to worry about them dropping pieces.
I think this book would make a great gift, as I said earlier it’s uplifting and beautifully written. Also, it isn’t something you have to sit and read all at once (I would recommend it because I loved reading it that way but you don’t have to) – she has each of the nights broken down into chapters so if you wanted or needed to you could read just the chapter for that night and it’s just a couple of pages.
I am thinking it would be fun this year to get a new smaller nativity to start this tradition this year. I have a little table that I could set it up on and then my family would know each year what to look forward to when it comes out.
If you’re looking for an easy way to add a little more Christ to your Christmas this year I highly recommend picking up this book. You’ll love it and I think your family would too.
