The use of Nativity sets originated in the 13th century when St. Francis of Assisi celebrated midnight mass in a stable, reenacting the Christmas story for all who came to celebrate. The beautiful tradition of outdoor Nativity sets continues today, and the usage of indoor Nativity sets is also overwhelmingly popular. Churches, communities, neighborhoods, and individual homes all proudly display Christmas Nativity sets both indoors and outdoors during the holiday season. Christmas Nativity sets are not only meaningful; they are also a beautiful addition to holiday décor. Nativity sets bring texture, color, and detail into your home or yard. Nativity sets are a source of awe and inspiration and usually end up being a conversation piece. Whether you are looking for an indoor or outdoor Nativity set or for specific individual Nativity figurines, St. Patrick’s Guild is pleased to carry several options for any space or taste.
