The Christmas manger tradition has held a special place in our lives for many years. Filling the manger with fresh ‘straw’ (each strand representing a good deed) reminded us of the true meaning of Christmas. This one-of-a-kind, interactive experience includes a handmade, wooden manger and a plush, baby Jesus, along with fabric strips to use as ‘straw’ to record acts of service and kindness on. Become inspired by the story of an innkeeper’s son, Abe, who prepared a place for Jesus’s birth in Bethlehem.
