Local congregations of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the United States and overseas hosted thousands of nativity displays during the Christmas season depicting biblical accounts of the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. From hand-crafted nativities to live presentations, the nativities from around the world bear testimony of the divinity of the Savior's birth. Traditional Christmas nativity scenes include Jesus in a manger with figurines of His mother, Mary; Joseph; angels; shepherds and farm animals.
