Santa

Our Neighbor Reports: "The car stopped for quite a long time to view the Christmas lights across the street and then my attention was riveted when the driver, a young women, got out of the car with her toddler in tow, and walked toward the display. Was she going to steal something I wondered? She trudged through the snow toward the creche and paused. The toddler reached out a hand toward the center of the creche and I heard, "Yes, That is the baby Jesus."

Last year we added a narration from the Bible about the true meaning of Christmas and also added most of the individual characters in that magnificent story! Last year we added the angel winging her way through the heavens above our house.

As you watch our twinkling pine trees, wisemen, a singing santa, a nativity scene and a star above the stable, we hope that you may also touch Jesus and that He will touch you with the true meaning of this holy season.

Wisemen Manger Scene Shepherd

The Magi (/ˈmæ/ or /ˈm/; Greek: μάγοι, magoi), also referred to as the Wise Men or Kings were, in the Gospel of Matthew and Christian tradition, a group of distinguished foreigners who visited Jesus after his birth, bearing gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. They are regular figures in traditional accounts of the nativity celebrations of Christmas and are an important part of Christian tradition.

According to Matthew, they came "from the east" to worship the "king of the Jews".Although the account does not mention the number of people "they" or "the Magi" refers to, the three gifts has led to the widespread assumption that there were three men. In Eastern Christianity, especially the Syriac churches, the Magi often number twelve. Their identification as kings in later Christian writings is probably linked to Psalms 72:11, "May all kings fall down before him".

A stable is a building in which livestock, especially horses, are kept.

A manger, or trough, is a feeder that is made of carved stone, wood, or metal construction and is used to hold food for animals (as in a stable). Mangers are mostly used in livestock raising. A manger is also a Christian symbol, associated with nativity scenes where Mary, forced by necessity to stay in a stable instead of an inn, placed the baby Jesus in a manger (Greek: φατνη phatnē; Luke 2:7).

In 2014 the Nativity scene that was the centerpiece of our display was upgraded to show each individual character. That allowed us to tell the story of Jesus birth by illuminating characters while we read the account in Luke and Matthew.

A shepherd /ˈʃɛpərd/, or sheepherder, is a person who tends, herds, feeds, or guards herds of sheep. The word stems from an amalgam of sheep herder.

Shepherds are popular biblical characters including the popular Psalm 23 "The Lord is my Shepherd. I shall not want".

But probably the most famous shepherds in scripture are those who were tending sheep near Bethlehem witnessing the proclamation by many angels (heavenly host) about the good news of Jesus' birth.

For Christians their key part in the story establishes without a doubt that Jesus came for all people - commoners and kings.
