ORIGINAL POST DEC. 13, 2011
A couple of kitchy crèches spontaneously appeared in our offices recently (something about a dare) and reminded me it’s been a while since this topic has been visited.
Here are the local offenders:
And the original blog I came across in 2011, whyismarko. He’s up to 62:
From a very young age I have always loved Nativity scenes. I had my own as a child that featured small wood-carved painted figures that I set up and took down through Advents past. One can be found on display in my dining room year round and somewhere in storage is a classic crèche that has been in the family for years and is safely waiting for a slightly less rambunctious household in which to be displayed. Maybe next year.
The beauty of the Nativity story told in statuary was something that I didn’t think could be done wrong. And then I came across this blog…
Truth be told, there is one in the collection that I kind of like (Hint – It’s not the one made of meat).
If you have pictures of beautiful crèches out there to offset these, please link them in the comments.
