Modern Nativity Scenes

Do you decorate with a nativity scene? Do you have a family heirloom that is carefully unwrapped each holiday season or have you decided that it’s not quite your style?

Sometimes living in small spaces means giving up on the full holiday decorating like a Christmas tree or fireplace furnishings. The mini-nativity, often just the right size for a side table or shelf, says “Christmas” without all the largeness of other décor. And these modern versions of this classic item would fit into any modernists abode.
