I took this photo not long ago when I was considering writing a post on some local time-honored traditional Christmas outdoor decorations. I don’t know if this scene falls into that category because I am not sure exactly how long ago this display began. So, the question became is it time-honored yet?
It seems to me that we noticed it a few years ago – at least three and now we look forward to seeing it every year. For us, it has become sort of a tradition to drive by slowly, taking a moment amid the hustle and bustle to admire the scene and remember exactly what and why we celebrate.
It is one of the nicest nativity scenes we have seen around. It sits just off the road I travel frequently and I pass it several times a week if not more. The best time to see it is at night when the lights focus your attention on the manger.
If you celebrate this most special of holidays, I want to wish you a very Merry Christmas! I hope you have some wonderful memories to carry you into the New Year. I also want to thank each of you for the gift of your readership and encouragement. I know that it can be a bit strange on this blog sometimes, so the fact that you return to read, comment, laugh, poke fun, offer advice makes me think that this planet has some really terrific people inhabiting it. Thanks for being there. Yes, there. Just out there. There in blogland. It’s so nice to know you’re nearby. Enjoy the holidays!
