For our family, the main focus of the Christmas season is the Nativity story. We enjoy the lights, the presents, and the music, but above all Christmas is a religious holiday in our house. My boys are two and three, and I am always looking for activities that will help them understand what happened on the very first Christmas night. This year, we’ll be taking in the Live Nativity at St. Luke’s United Methodist Church for the first time. The Christmas story will be brought to life with actors and even live animals. I know my boys will be excited to see the live donkeys, sheep, and camels that are featured in the performance. My hope is that they will be drawn into the beauty of the story as well. The Live Nativity will be on December 9th, at 4:00 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. This event is free, and it’s appropriate for all ages. St. Luke’s United Methodist Church is located on the north side of Indianapolis, at 100 West 86th Street. All are welcome, so bring your family and friends to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas!     Crystal Paschal is a teacher, freelance writer, wife, and mom of two young boys.
