In 1223 Greccio, Italy, the emphasis of Christmas was slowly drifting away from the Christ of birth and towards materialism and gift giving. In an attempt to draw people back to Christ, St. Francis of Assisi was inspired to create the very first nativity scene.
In a cave near the town, St Francis re-created the birth of Christ with humans and animals cast as the Biblical characters. The Pope gave his blessing and the scene was a huge success. Soon the idea spread across the whole of Italy until it became a part of every Catholic Church’s tradition. Statues began to replace humans and over the centuries the whole of Western culture has adopted the tradition with their own cultural twists.
A tradition in England involved baking mince pies in the shape of a manager. The pie would hold baby Jesus until the evening meal when families ate the pie. In the 17th century the practice was banned by the Puritans, calling the pies ‘idolatrie in crust’.
The display of 'The Nativity Scene' in the Christian celebration of Christmas is a reminder to all. It signifies the Christmas message, that Jesus is the Christ the birth of Gods own Son. This is why we celebrate Christmas, to thank God for sending his Son on this day, represented in magnificent ways across the world to show appreciation and worship for the coming of the Messiah.
