{Post 1,450} Newly Displayed Christmas Decorations

I love the Christmas season.  This weekend is one of my favorites in a frantic, hectic, loss-of-sleep kind of way.  We usually start the process of getting all the fall decorations down and the Christmas ones up the day after Thanksgiving.  My newly-married daughter (March of this year) asked for our lighted house display.  We had 5 ceramic lighted houses.  I had always put them in our foyer, but I was kinda tired of them, to be honest.  

Wes's grandmother gave us a piece of a crystal nativity every year after we were married.  I decided to put it up in my foyer.  Just found the perfect lights for it.  Need to find another set for the bottom level, where the wise men are making their way towards the baby Jesus with their bedecked camel.  I always set them up far away from the manger (after all, it took them two years to get there!

I love reading that you set your wise men away from the nativity itself. I do the same thing, and my kids teased me all the time about being such a purist.
Beautiful display!

Very nice. Your crystal nativity is lovely! I enjoy the decorations to celebrate Christmas as well. I put up my Christmas decorations on Saturday and didn't set up my nativity scene because I couldn't think of a place to put it. But, now I am inspired and I have a tea cart that might work, or in a bookcase shelf.
