Creche Festival

While studying Saint Francis, we learned that he is thought to have started the tradition of the creche or nativity display.

We visited a creche festival held at a local Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints . It was absolutely spectacular!  It was the most amazing variety and display of nativity scenes, backed by live musical numbers, a live nativity and various activities and a craft for children.  One of the activities was a dress up area where you could recreate the nativity scene and they took photos and gave online access for download.  Unfortunately, those photos are the only ones I have from the evening!

Some very serious angels, before Mary and Joseph joined them.  ;)
