Live Nativities to Experience this Season

Christmas is a special time of year, especially with meaningful family traditions.

Nativity events—some featuring traditional nativities, some performing live ones – are one such tradition that many families enjoy attending each year. Many nativities host re-enactments with costumed characters, live animals and refreshments.
