Recently, I spoke with Judi Judkins, the coordinator for the Christmas Nativity Celebration. It was held right here in Shreveport, Louisiana this month and hosted hundreds of nativity scenes from around the world -- from South America to the South Pacific to Europe and, yes, America.

I always wondered how other cultures celebrated the Christmas Nativity scene, and what I learned was that everybody has their own unique spin.

The Nativity scenes I saw ranged in style. There were classic Nativity scenes, hand-woven and art deco Nativity scenes, as well as rustic Nativity scenes. I can't think of a Nativity style that wasn't represented in the group's display!
