Nutcracker Mary with angels

Very pretty, but someone is confusing their Tchaikovsky with their Bible!

Less pretty but more coherent:

    Funny. My son (7-year-old) took the wise men out of our nativity scene yesterday because he was bothered by the historical inaccuracy. Wonder what he’d think of the toy soldiers?

    Merry Christmas!

    You must have taught him well, Cheryl. I’m sure lots of adults don’t recognize the inaccuracy of the wise men at the manger scene.

    (For the benefit of other readers, the wise men arrived a little later, when Jesus’ family was living in a house: “And going into the house they saw the child with Mary his mother” — Mt. 2:11.)
