Everyone seems to have a hobby of their own. Some collect vintage toys, others ephemera, I on the other hand, collect nativity figures. I started collecting when I was little, after I received a Nativity set from my mom as a First Communion gift.
I know, an odd "hobby."
As a Catholic, they are the ultimate symbol of Christmas, a reminder of the true meaning of Christmas.
A Nativity set, similar to this, started my passion for collecting Creches.
