On Sunday December 23, 3 knights drove every street in town to count Nativity displays. We counted all yard Nativity sets and all Nativity scenes inside houses but in windows and visible from the street. This year we counted 43! That is up 1 from last year. Several of our usual Nativity Scenes were missing this year, probably because some people moved away and also because some people age, and putting the sets up becomes a problem. It seems the knights have to sell about 6 new ones each year just so the count can remain stable. Nevertheless, we can quite comfortably declare St. Walburg as still being the Nativity Scene capital of Canada! For the 11th year in a row! Thanks to all who participated to help keep Christ in Christmas.
