Nativity Sets - How big do you go?

Mar 23 2011


It is March and I am working on a design for a nativity set for the 2011 Christmas season.  The question that plagues me…is a five piece set a sufficient basic set? Does this basic set consist of (Mary, Joseph, baby Jesus, Angel and Sheppard) or do you remove the Sheppard in this collection and add the donkey instead; or (Mary, Joseph, baby Jesus, Angel and Crèche)? Each year I would bring in another set to the collection, such as the Wise Men, but for a basic set, what do you think?

Hi Gabrielle, If I had to choose only 5 they would be Mary, Joseph, Jesus, a laying down donkey and a lamb.

My Nativity has Mary, Joseph, Jesus, a laying down donkey, 3 sheep, Shepherd, 3 Kings, a camel, and an angel and star.
