There is a growing number of people who are beginning to be bothered by what they see as the commercialization of Christmas. The season has become one big opportunity to sell almost everything –clothes, toys, video game consoles, music gadgets, jewelry, and so on ad infinitum. Some people are concerned that the real reason for Christmas has been relegated to the background. They say it is time we put Christ back in Christmas.
While there are deeper and more meaningful ways to do this, it might help to include in our Christmas decorations a depiction of the first Christmas, such as the Fontanini by Roman Model 169888 Holy Family Lighted Yard Art.
The Fontanini Model 169888 consists of three pieces of yard art portraying the baby Jesus, Mary, and Joseph. The baby Jesus lies in a manger that is overlaid with golden straw. His hands are outstretched with palms open as if he is trying to reach out to someone. The Virgin Mary is dressed in red, white, and blue. She is kneeling and is looking down towards her son. Joseph is standing, leaning on his staff, also gazing and smiling at the baby Jesus.
Mini lights are fitted along the outlines of the each of the figures, making them visible at night, at least in silhouette. The lights add up to a total of 210 and run on 120V.
Constructed out of PVC and metal, the Fontanini by Roman Model 169888 Holy Family Lighted Yard Art can last for several Christmases. Sturdy wire frames that can withstand moderate winds support each figure.
Joseph stands 46.5" and has a width of 25.25", while Mary is 33.5" high and 24" wide. The baby Jesus is 13.25" high and 17.25" wide.
