Over the years I have collected 10 nativity scenes. I guess it began when I wanted to take the focus of Christmas away from the commercialism (Santa, toys, candy...)and put the focus on the real reason for the season.

Like most families, mine knew the real reason for Christmas, but got caught up in presents and Santa. We never led the kids to believe that Santa was real. They were always told he is a fictional character from stories. But with all their friends and outside commercialism, they grew up relating Christmas with Santa and presents.

So now one of the first things I put up every year is our Nativity scenes. So take time during the rush of this Christmas season to remember the REAL reason for the season. The birth of Jesus Christ!
