Most Christians in America have a Nativity Scene.  We always include the same characters including shepherds, wisemen, Mary, Joseph and Baby Jesus.  In France, Santons or "little saints" are included.   Santons allow the everyday common working man to be part of this Holy Night.  Tune in to find out more about France's nativity or "creche" scenes.
