we're inviting our friends and neighbors to send us pictures of their nativities to include - that's the "Community" part.
Via email, send us a picture of your nativity set, along with the name you would like to have appear with the pic and your city or town. We will then include you in our first ever virtual display!* Deadline for submission is December 10, 2020.
