I'm addicted to Nativity Scenes

With Advent around the corner, we've started receiving our annual barrage of catalogs.  While flipping through the catalogs from Leaflet Missal and Christian Book Distributors last night, I found myself drawn to the items featuring the nativity and/or the Holy Family.  I reflected on our Christmas decor and realized that my snowman theme has melted away and has been replaced over the years with a Nativity theme.  Now, I know that we shouldn't collect too many treasures here on earth, but collecting Nativity scenes can't be a bad thing, right?  I mean, they always say to fill your home with holy images, right?  And we need to focus on the birth of Christ rather than commercialism, right? 

By loving images of the Holy Family, I have a reminder of how I hope that my family reflects the most perfect family.
