Day of the Kings

Today is the "Day of the Three Kings". The day that the church celebrates the visitation of the three kings to the baby Jesus. It is a tradition in our house not to add the Kings to the Nativity scene until this day. This picture shows pieces from a Nativity set that belonged to my grandmother. The set is from Italy and very old... it needs repair but I am afraid to touch it up for fear that I would mess it up. I think I will leave them alone...

  1. At my mom's church they also just put the kings in the nativity on Sunday closest to the 6th and we call it Epiphany Sunday.
