The second annual crèche (nativity) display held at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in San Manuel was wonderful and inspirational this year.

Dorothy Staggs and her volunteers did another excellent job.

More than 600 nativity scenes were on display along with paintings and wall hangings featuring the birth of Christ. There was even a western theme wreath made from barbed wire and metal. Many of the crèches were from other countries and there was one nativity scene that was a family heirloom and over 100 years old.

On Saturday, western entertainer and poet Jon Richins performed during the day. He entertained groups with his western humor, sang a few western Christmas songs, and read some cowboy Christmas poetry. There was a musical celebration and a Christmas devotional on Sunday evening with refreshments served at the end of the evening.

A few of the comments written in the visitors’ log by people who viewed the display included: “Inspirational,” “Cool, Awesome,” “Amazing,” and “Do it again next year.”
