Last week I stopped by to visit my sweet sister, and I noticed that she had started to put up our heirloom Christmas treasure, the nativity set from when we were children. We started to calculate how old the nativity set was, which lead me to the photo album.
The back of the photo has the year as 1953.
I can't believe they let me play with the nativity set!
This photo was dated 1961.
Look at the pattern on the drapes. Yikes!
This photo was taken December 2011.
My sister wasn't happy I took the picture before
she finished her set-up, but if I had waited any longer I
would have been roped into helping her to finish the display.
We can document with photos that
our family owned the nativity in 1953.
My sister remembers it being in our home when she was ten or eleven.
So we estimate the age to be around 63 years old.
Does your family have an heirloom Christmas treasure? If you have blogged about your treasure leave me your URL in the comments section, I would love to read and see photos of your treasures.
