No Room for Jesus at the Manger

Springfield, MA's, Nativity Scene across from City Hall is conspicuous in its missing baby Jesus. Everyone else is there: The people, the animals, the sets. But no baby Jesus. One would think that could be remedied rather quickly. But we are, after all, in Springfield, where the city's vagrants have determined there will be no benches in Court Square (due to their use of them as cots). I guess if the baby Jesus was replaced, some jerk would probably just steal it and try to sell it for drug money, anyway...




Meanwhile, we have the "Arrange the Nativity Scene" for children. Adults can play with it, too.

Our family tradition has always been to place Jesus in our creche on Christmas Eve, so the kids would not only wake up to Santa Claus's coming, but the Christ-Child's as well.

After all, He doesn't really appear on the scene until Christmas Day.

Could it be that the keepers of the Creche in Springfield are doing something similar?

I hope so.

Possibly!

I'm just a pessimist.
