Christmas Crib Model
A Christmas Crib Model, also known as The Nativity Scene is a representation of the birth of Jesus in the form of a beautifully crafted model display. The model depicts the environment that Jesus was born in, along with the people that were present, which included Mary and Joseph. The creation of the Christmas Crib Model gives people the opportunity to appreciate the conditions of the birth of Jesus and is also a helpful teaching tool into one of the greatest stories ever told.
The Christmas Crib Model is formed from the nativity story originally told and displayed over 1000 years ago by St Francis of Assisi in the year 1223. The scene that displayed the worship of Christ inspired many more appreciations to be developed including live scenes, which included re-enactment by real people and also models representing the people at the Christmas Crib Model.
Christmas Crib Models are an essential product of Christmas time which is used in churches, public venues and homes. The Christmas Crib Model is a tradition that inspires people to realise the true meaning of why we celebrate Christmas. Many people are influenced by products and themes that surround us in this modern world, and forget the reason why we have Christmas. The Christmas Crib Model is a perfect reminder of the meaning of Christmas and helps people to understand and appreciate the people around them and that love is the real gift given on Christmas.
