This Nativity Scene from downtown JAsper, Georgia depicts the reason for the season. We celebrate today the birth of Jesus. It’s not about trees or Santa or elves or giving gifts. It is about an amazing plan for us to be saved by the likes of a child born in a manger surrounded by animals. 

No matter what else you do today, no matter what food you eat or presents you open. No matter what parades you watch or football games during which you nap…this scene is what it is all about.
