Most Beautiful Christmas Heirloom Nativity Fontanini Nativity Set

Updated on December 1, 2014

Fontanini Nativity Set


Christmas Nativity Set | Fontanini Natvity Set

Christmas has become a very commercial time of year, and we often forget what the season is all about. When it comes to decorating for the holidays, many people look at the Christmas tree as the center piece of the decorations. But when you look at the religious aspect of the holiday, the focus becomes Jesus and the Nativity Scene.

Like many families, putting up our Fontanini Natvity set was a tradition that I will never forget. We would gently remove each figurine from the tissue paper it was wrapped in from the previous year and gently place it in the manger scene. The Nativity set was a huge part of the Holiday tradition.

In many families the manger nativity gets passed down to several generations. And this is why people are willing to invest in the best made product when it comes to their Christmas heirloom nativity set. The manger scene needs to be able to survive many Christmases. People look for quality.

There are many different kinds of Nativity sets out there. The most beautiful are often the most expensive but they are the most well made. Because of this, what many families do is they build up their nativity scene by adding new pieces each year until they have a complete set. They often start out with just a few pieces of the manger nativity like The virgin Mary, Joseph and Jesus. Then over the years they add in the other pieces.

The most popular Nativity set that families prefer to collect are the Fontanini Heirloom Nativity Sets.

      I remember buying a cheap Nativity set for my mum one year when I was still a child. I grew to love it more than she did. Happy memories :)

      I have fond memories of Mativity sets at various places we visited when i was younger. These sets look like a great option and i appreciate you mentioning the fact that the real focus is not on the trees and lights but the Saviour!
