UMW Nativity Displays - Annual Manger Scene

Every year, Riviera United Methodist Women host  "The Manger Scene" as a fund raiser. People in our congregation bring in their collections of nativity scenes from all over the world. Here are some of the highlights!
 
 
 


From Guatemala
 

Big Bear, Calif.
 
 
 

From Russia

Some talented soul hand-carved this one and  put it in a box!

Sorry, but I had a little trouble focusing my camera, but you can get an idea.

I loved the life size Nativity scenes in front of public buildings in Tijuana that you don't see here anymore, sadly enough.
