A very special part of the Christmas season is seeing a live nativity scene with Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus in the manger. Here is where your family can see the blessed event recreated.

Christmas has become so commercialized, it's nice to remember to take time to remember the reason for the season. Your entire family can follow the star and be taken back in time to a stable in Bethlehem and see a live depiction of the nativity scene at these places in 2018.
