When I went to Europe in 1980, I visited the town of Oberammergau. The town is full of woodcarvers. Their work is magnificent. I bought a little angel in a shop and told myself I would have a carved nativity from Oberammergau someday. Well, I was young and they were very pricey, so it was not to be. Years later, my husband's parents gave us their nativity. My father-in-law had bought it for my mother-in-law. It's not handcarved or fancy in any way, but it's certainly cherished.
