It is Christmas time, and I could not help but notice that every single table was completely covered in all sorts of different nativity scenes. It took me a while to notice because the knick-knacks on the table were just a blur, until a single unique nativity scene happened to catch my eye. The next day, another unique piece caught my eye. By the third day, I had to stop looking at the tree and focus on the forest. That’s when I realized that EVERY SINGLE knick-knack on the table was a nativity scene!
I asked her how many she had, and she said she counted them every single year as she put them out. The number for this year was 160 (she made sure to point out this included the magnets on the fridge and external door hanging piece).
I must say that I have not decorated for Christmas this year in my own apartment, so perhaps this is Jesus’s way to remind me that He WAS born and that it IS His birthday after all. Can’t forget that here.
Merry Christmas everyone!
