No longer are there set rules or distinctions between what to or not to put on a Christmas tree. The sky’s the limit!

1. Jim Shore Heartwood Creek Nativity Angel – The Nativity is the expression of what Christmas is all about: giving oneself selflessly for another. With the angels extolling the coming of the Messiah to the beautiful and intricate design of that humble manger, offers everyone a look into the majestic wonder of God’s love for us all.
