Pairs - Come To The Manger

This week my Pairs reflect some of what Christmas is about to me, although I know some do not share in this part of the reason for the season.  

My Pairs this week are two very different types of nativities.  One is flat in one dimension, very modern & the other is quite dimensional & more traditional in appearance & set up.   And as you can see everything is currently green - very unusual for this region at this time of year.

This Pair are both part of a very large event, called"Sparkle In The Park".  Each individual display is created, set up & paid for by different business, clubs, churches & organizations. There's snowpersons, (oh heck forget the politically correct, Snowmen!) elves, reindeer, Santas;  every conceivable idea of winter & Christmas is represented.

  1. Visiting your blog for the first time :) I love the contrast between the 2 nativities :) Very nicely done!

    Merry Christmas!


  2. Yes that is indeed what Christmas is all about. Sometimes it is easy to forget.

  3. would be nice to see the first one lit up!

  4. I love seeing all the Nativities at this time of year. It's the one thing I don't have in my Christmas decorations but am hoping to buy a nice set in the sales ready for next year.

    Sparkle in the Park sounds like good fun ... did you take any photos of the lights at night on the modern nativity

    Hope you have a lovely Christmas.

  5. Lovely cribs - one of my favourite things about Christmas.

  6. Good to remember what Christmas is all about.

  7. I took some photos of the nativity scenes in our chapel Sunday, but I'm so far behind on editing photos, I haven't seen them yet! These are lovely. Have a Merry Christmas!

  8. Lovely! Sorry you haven't got any snow yet, I bet they'd look perfect in snow! Merry Christmas to you and your family. Looking forward to sharing stories in 2016!

  9. Lovely nativities, may God send you a peaceful and joyful Christmas x
