Christmas Observations #2

Nativity Scene in Hong Kong

Sign beside nativity scene. Text reads:
The Maryknoll House Nativity collection shows how the Christmas story has been told in different cultures throughout the world. The story is about a child who was born in a manger, with his father and mother . Made of various materials, each culture has taken the basic theme of the story and wrapped it in the language of its own art.

Talk about glazing over the details... not even the details, the most important parts. Anyhow, this is an observation, not a rant, so I suppose I should stop there.
