Tell us about your nativity scene

For many people, nativity sets — or crèches — are a special part of the Christmas celebration. Some are handed down through generations, others are gifts from friends, and still others have specific religious significance for the owner.

If you display a nativity scene that has special meaning for you and your family, we'd like to hear about it.

Send us a short description of the crèche and why it is special. Include a photo as an attachment, if you have one (we would prefer it be at least 300 dpi and in the JPG file format). Email your story and photo to (with "Nativity" in the subject line).

Please respond by noon Dec. 14.

We'll select some of the stories to publish in Life + Faith as Christmas approaches.
