    While the only know reference to a chicken in the Gospels is found
    in John, we like to think that if the Gospel of Luke was a little longer
    we might of had a picture something like this:

    I was expecting a purple silkie to be standing next to the wise men. With a little water color they will be purple next year.

    The camels don't get there until July 6th (3 Kings day). That's the way we set the nativity scenes when I was growing up.

    That's interesting. What denomination did you grow as?


    Disclaimer: Since I'm the author of this post I feel it would be on topic to discuss
    the various beliefs of the birth of Christ in the manger, especially since so little is
    written about this.

    I do believe various fowl and birds would be present.

    Lutheran, but we lived in the Virgin Islands. Three Kings day is a BIG DEAL there. Christmas Day was the more church/religious part of the holliday season and three kings day was more of the drink, party and gift giving day of the season.

    Instead of leaving stockings by the fireplace for Santa (fireplace??), you would leave grass in your shoes by the front door. The three kings would stop by and leave small gifts in your shoes- the grass was for their camels. I guess that's sort of like a cross between santa and the Easter Bunny.
