Find the Perfect Nativity Set
In 1223, Saint Francis created the first Nativity scene in Grecio, Italy. His beautiful work quickly became popular and before long, many Italian churches were creating their own Christmas Nativities. Eventually, the Nativity sparked a tradition throughout Europe that quickly spread across the globe. Now, the Nativity set is an American farmhouse classic.
From ceramic and wood to painted creations—there's no end to the vision behind this time-honored Christmas delight. Center the joy of Christmas this year with a nativity set in your farmhouse style.
