It was Christmastime in 1223...Francis of Assisi wanted to depict the hardships endured by Joseph, Mary, and the Infant Jesus. He bought torches, animals, & hay to a nearby cave and a Christmas message was delivered to people. Over time, people submitted "live" enactment's with carved figures and "cribmaking." In this tradition, it is only fitting that St. Francis find a place in all nativity's! Boxed with story card.
