- "Nativity" Dept. 56 Storybook Village Item #56.13241. Mint condition in original box & sleeve. Size: 10" x 5.7" x 5.8".

In a quiet little town in a land far-away
On a cold wintry night, there was no place to stay
Two tired travelers Joseph and his wife
Were ready to welcome a new and precious life.

The kindly innkeeper did the best he was able
He offered them the shelter of a manger in his stable.
The animals were happy to have a baby as their guest
Mary was happy to have a place at last to rest.

A great star in the sky could be seen for miles around
It guided shepherds, angels, kings
To where the baby could be found
And from that time so long ago we celebrate his birth
The prince whose simple message was
For love and hope and peace on earth.
