The First Nativity

Like I said, I like to pick up nativities here and there.  This was the first one I got more than 20 years ago and here's the story, or, the version I remember.

My church has lots of programs for children and teenagers where you set goals and work on different projects and things.  There were various rewards for meeting certain goals, and unfortunately those rewards were (and still are) often jewelry for the girls.  When I was about 10, my mother was in charge of running everything for all the children in my church in a fairly large area, and so she decided to skip the jewelry and instead got nativity set pieces instead.   

I promise, that was a much better system.
