My very favorite Christmas decoration — the thing that makes Christmas for me — is the manger scene or crèche.
In the past I have used a crèche on the mantel and even on top of the piano. I have a small collection so I like to spread them over the house.
This year the ceramic crèche has moved from the mantel to the bottom shelf of the glass coffee table where it can be easily seen but relatively safe from breaking.
I like this manger scene because it was the first one I ever owned and the faces of the figurines are so pretty.
As the days go on we’ll be bringing down even more seasonal items from the attic in an effort to deck the halls.
What makes it Christmas for you?
