Thinking Outside of the Box

Or, thinking inside of the box if you are talking about 'At the Manger.'

Nativities can be displayed in a variety of interesting ways, especially when designing with boxes. One of the four displays at this year's At the Manger exhibit highlights the creative ingenuity that comes from exploring unusual alternatives for Nativity containers. Some of these Nativities arrived in boxes already; others have had custom boxes designed by volunteers. The boxes showcase distinctive Nativities as well as a variety of common and inexpensive sets. The goal is to give visitors an idea of the creative ways they can display their own precious Nativities and maybe even inspire people to start collections.
