The Nativity Scene is a Christmas classic, depicting the birth of Jesus Christ in a stable.
In a classic Nativity Scene, there are some key elements:
- Mary and Joseph, Jesus' parents
- Shepherds, who followed the Star to find the stable and witness the birth of Christ
- Three Wise Men, who brought gold, frankincense, and myrrh to celebrate Jesus's birth
- Sheep, because it's a barn
- Baby Jesus (duh)
What you don't usually see, however, is a cat. Like, a real live cat. Just hanging out in the Nativity Scene. That is, unless, you live in New York City.
