Holly Cowell: Such small pieces of plastic, but for me, they represent many memories to cherish. My nativity has stamped on the bottom Ð made in Western Germany. It arrived on Christmas Eve about 1957. As was our custom at the time, we celebrated Christmas Eve with my grandmother, who was born in Germany and came to America with her husband in 1902.
Jan Applegate, Kentucky Gateway Museum Center, Maysville: With all the excitement and festivities of the Season, the Nativity scene helps to reflect the true meaning of Christmas, through the portrayal of the miracle of the birth of Jesus and the expression of love the shepherds had for the Christ child. Kathleen Savage Browning has made it possible to experience this extraordinary event, as a part of her Miniatures Collection.
