Spirit of Christmas

I am now getting into the Christmas spirit! I made my Martha wreath (I'll make it's own post later today once I can take the picture in the daylight), started my Christmas cards in earnest (send me your address if you want one), and am suddenly in desperate need of a nativity set for the kids. Last year about this time I was also in desperate need and ended up empty handed. This year may be the same. If there was a store that had them in stock around here I'd just go and snatch one up. But, this whole ordering online thing (I have no problems w/ online shopping) is making me balk. I don't know what it is. So, if there are any of my readers that haven't bought anything for my kids yet (of course, only the readers that would get presents for my kids in the first place), I have a suggestion. NATIVITY SETS! Here are the ones that I've been looking at. Either one would be a welcome addition to our home.

I guess the Christmas spirit I'm getting combines baby Jesus and shopping. I'm so complex.

You can find the Little People Nativity online here.

The Playmobil here.

If anyone does happen to get one of these for my family--will you leave an anonymous comment? Because I have a feeling that after a week or two, I'll be ready to order one myself.


  1. We have the little people nativity and the kids LOVE it! When you push the angel, a little light shines on baby Jesus and it plays Away in a Manger. Sometimes the wisemen end up driving the little people bus or baby Jesus ends up at the little people zoo, but oh well. Oh, and when I opened the box this year to set it up, guess who I found. . .the bus driver. He got stashed away with the nativity all year!

  2. Christy, since Wendy can testify to the little people nativity set I will testify to the Play mobile set which is the highlight of our Christmas every year. My husband glued all the pieces together so that not even myrrh can be misplaced. Although, is that cheating?

  3. Thank you both for your wonderful testimonies of the nativity sets. I figured I would be good to go either set.

  4. I soooo want the little people nativity (sigh). Can't wait to see the wreath.

  5. I too vote Little People since I just got it! Seriously, I think the best part of it is the mohawk on the donkey. It's awesome. enrichment tonight, dear Aunt Judy called herself fat and fluffy. What????? So silly!

  6. I believe my problem has been solved! Woohoo!

    Santa heard Christy's wish. The Little People are on his sleigh.
