The Nativity scene is often part of many Christian homes' seasonal decorations at Christmas time. These figures can be placed into a stables of your own making. The tradition often includes a practice of incrementally adding more figures to the crib over the days leading up to Christmas day on December 25th. There is no assembly required after casting, other than place baby Jesus into his crib.
