3) Color the exterior of the stable. Use your imagination.

4) Color the different figures.

5) Cut out carefully each character.

6) Cut out carefully the stable. Cut out VERY CAREFULLY the zones on the stables with the phrase "REMOVE". (For example, the window should be cut out.) Do not cut the bottom wood beams on the manger. These are there for ensuring a solid structural frame for the manger.

7) Color the interior of the stables. Use your imagination. Don't be afraid. For the interior, you may draw in piles of straw, wooden beams, some small animals (birds, mice, etc.), blankets, etc.

8) Fold the taps and stable along folding lines (lines with white dots).

9) Paste manger scene stable together making sure that all walls are perfectly aligned.

10) Fold taps of characters and trees.

11) Paste the donkey and bull on the interior back wall of the stable.

12) Paste the angel in the center of the front top beam of the stable.

13) Paste the star on top of the straw. Paste the straw in the middle of the back exterior of the stable.

14) Optional: The palm trees: Color them and then cut them out carefully. Paste together the front and back of each tree. Paste palm tree #1 on the left corner of the back exterior wall of the stable. Paste palm tree #2 on the right corner of the back exterior wall of the stable.

15) Take a sheet of cardboard or paper and decide where on it you will place the manger scene. Then draw a road to the stable, sand, rocks and some bushes on the sheet.

16) Place manger scene on cardboard sheet. You can use a couple pieces of scotch tape to anchor the scene in place.

17) Place the characters (Mary, Joseph and Jesus) inside the stable. Place the another characters on the outside of the Christmas stable.

18) The manger scene is finished and all you have to do is put it in your room.

Snowman Waving From the Top of The World My vote is to have Christmas traditions all year round. You see at Christmas time most people at least the ones I have met, always change just a little for the better around Christmas. I do not know whether or not it is the great yuletide Christmas carols, the festive atmosphere everywhere you go, or just some hidden part in all of us that screams out,
You see, somewhere deep down inside we all believe in something better than we now have or see, and most of us feel a lot better when we help someone. Whether the person is in need or not, this feeling is what I call the feeling of Christmas, and we all should strive to feel this way all year long.

The feeling of the Christmas holidays is truly all about family, friends and celebrating all things good.

The Lord's birthday is swiftly coming
Christmas carols we're merrily humming,
Adoration and harmony spreads worldwide
As we eagerly await the happy Yuletide.

Enhance your Christmas, with Christmas poems and stories highlighted with your favorite Christmas carols. Christmas traditions are fast becoming a family way of life.
Poems are a simple way of inspiring others to join in on the Christmas traditions that love and poems bring to this Christmas holiday.
