December 24.

Saint Francis, being a man who wanted to experience things with all of his senses, decided one Christmas to depict the birth of Jesus with live animals and real people. This “first crèche” was created in Greccio in 1223.

Our tradition of having a Christmas crèche continues the tradition begun many years ago.[ ]
