Nativity scenes

I have always loved nativity scenes.
This is a picture of my Mom's gorgeous set. The figures are around 8" tall.
She has it set up on her sideboard.
Woodward's downtown used to set up a glorious full size nativity and when they went bankrupt, The Bay used to put it in their window, but I haven't seen it this year.
I have our set up on the mantel, but it is very simple.

I've got ours set up on the fireplace. I bought it over 40 years ago when we were living in Italy. Amazingly, none of the pieces are broken or chipped. However, it no longer plays Silent Night. The kids used to love winding it up when they were little. Our first cat used to climb in and sleep on top of Mary, Joseph, and Jesus. It never looked very comfortable to me, but she did it every Christmas. That manger has a lot of memories for me.
