Last Sunday I showed you some pictures of a nativity set that has been in my wife’s family since 1925. Today more nativity set photos, from an older and larger set.
If I read the sign correctly (which is debatable since my German is still practically non-existent), this set in the City Museum in Lippstadt dates back to about 1750. I gather it originally belonged to a family who lived in a local castle.
Maybe next year, when we visit at Advent, I will see the sign and realize I got it all wrong. If so, I’ll tell you all about it then.
For now, with Christmas Eve one week from tonight, here once more is a representation of that timeless story.
