I am not even remotely religious and I just love nativity scenes and it has been really fun to look at your family's collection!  It must be a special treat to get them out of storage every year to display them at Christmas.

MistressT, funny that you say that. We used to be kind of religious, but that has dwindled over the years. To the point where I can say that we are not religious anymore either. I'm a Witch as well, but I was named after Mother Mary and I have a strong fascination with it all.

That being said, it is a treat as well as hard work to get it all set up. My sister and I know that drill now and we know that the end result is worth all the hard work. People love to come and visit us during these weeks, just to see of there are new additions. Lots of family members love to contribute as well.

It's great to see your responses! We always think we're a bit crazy, but it feels awesome to be appreciated.

I collect Mother Mary images from all over the world to make shrines...I am not at all religious, but I have a deep respect for iconic images and things that have shaped our lives.  I love that people come to see your nativities...just the love and work that went into some of those is incredible!

Plus, it is a family tradition that ties you all together...so yes, the hard work is so worth it!  Thanks again for sharing your story and pictures!

I read an article that said after holiday blues are a very real thing!  Luckily I have a trip to Disney to look forward to.

Mine are still up, too!  Mostly because I had planned to take them down yesterday, but couldn't bring the boxes in from storage because our drive way entered the Death Luge phase right after my shoe traction devices broke.  I have devices today and it's not so slick out, BUT my Cricut Explore arrived last evening, so...
