Walpole is a town of tradition, and this evening marked the 37th Live Nativity on the Common, right at my front door.  I was flattered when the narrator, the son-in-law of the woman who started the live Nativity, said, “Walpole is a town of traditions, and this year marked the 4th Annual production of A CHRISTMAS CAROL by the Walpole Players.”  He concluded mentioning we have raised over $13,000 for the food shelves in four years.

The simple, yet touching and elegant live Nativity relates the birth of our Saviour, and I wanted to share with you.

The Full Live Nativity with Angels on the Common at the Band Shell

I woke up at 5AM Chrismas morning (was that a sleigh on the roof?) and realized that I did not have the full Nativity picture.  Actually, I like the one above more, but here is the completed scene.  And, by the way, waking up and looking at my statistics, I now have had over 4,000 views of my “blog.”  Thank you.

This is the completed Nativity with the Wise Men

    Hi Ray,

    Thanks for sharing your pictures of the live nativity! I missed it this year, as I went to St. Luke’s in Chester for mass on Christmas Eve. Maybe next year? Merry Christmas!
