I’m getting a slow start to Christmas decorations this year. Tonight I hung the stockings by the fireplace with care. I also set up my very small nativity display that I have been carrying around from place to place for probably about 20 years.
When I was little I remember looking forward to doing this every year with our family’s manger set. Unpacking the figurines – each year they seemed to have a few more nicks and cracks. Putting the fake straw and snow in the manger. Putting the 3 kings on one side. Putting the shepherds and animals on the other. Baby Jesus under the light.
I don’t know when (or if) we’ll get around to putting up a tree, or lights on the outside of the house this year. But at least, as of now, we are officially decorated for Christmas. 🙂
