Fontanini Nativity Photos from My 2002 Christmas Display

by Carol Abbott


Here are some pictures of my display as it was set up in December 2002.  Through out the year, various pieces are moved almost daily by my family.  Just as I suspected they would, the younger Grandchildren and sweet Great-Granddaughter Anjerial all have a go at rearranging the pieces.  And they sometimes ask questions about the various characters or make up their own stories and interpretations of events.  Michael loves the cats.   I always know I will find them on roofs and on walls when he has been here.   He also thinks sheep should be laying down, so they all end up on their sides.

Villagers going about their day.  (The building was built by our grandson, John, who did it for a school project.  Rather than discarding it or storing it in the attic at his house, I asked if I could make it a part of my display.  I think it worked out very well.)
