Why do we have nativity scene or Christmas crib on Christmas? There’s an unbound happiness surrounds us when depicting the scene of Jesus Christ’s birth. It was popularized, way back in the year 1223 by St. Francis Assisi, creating the first nativity scene at Greccio.
Christmas crib making ideas:
Creating a Christmas crib as part of the Christmas celebration is a fun-filled activity for families around us. As always, this year we did a simple nativity scene outdoor with clay, wooden sticks and date palm leaves.
Here’s how to make an outdoor nativity scene
First, a layer of sand is filled to cover the plastic sheet. Then, a cuboidal structure is made with wooden sticks over the sand layer.
We used earthen clay to make a wall covering the cuboid to resemble a stable. We covered the top with date palm leaves.
When they saw the star, they rejoiced – Mathew 2:10
Merry Christmas to all…
