Living Nativity Returns to Cass County
There is only one more weekend to experience the Living Nativity.
There is only ONE MORE weekend to enjoy the Living Nativity. Make sure to check out the new baby goats, baby calves and baby kittens who wander the barn. The kittens are a delightful surprise as they crawl under a stall wall to listen to the telling of the Christmas story through with a donkey or goat as a story starter.
You can even enjoy a cup of hot cocoa and have a little snack as the kids climb on the photo op camel. (you will have to stop by to see the camel. I didn't get a picture of it this year.
The Living Nativity in Murdock Nebraska is the only one in the state. It is quickly becoming an annual tradition with local families. This year there are several new additions
Saturday, & Sunday
3:00 - 6:00 pm
Stop by on the following dates. Bring a friend and consider bringing your local church youth group. This would not be possible without the volunteers of local residents and 4-H clubs who donate their time and several animals for the various nativity scenes.
Christmas in Murdock
The Christmas trees in Murdock have become an annual tradition. I forgot to count how many trees are in Murdock. So here is a trivia question.
HOW MANY CHRISTMAS TREES?
Thank you to all the volunteers that decorate Main Street with not only Christmas trees, but placed wreaths on the fences and poles. I love Christmas trees and couldn't get enough. So you may see me stalking the trees with my camera as soon as it snows. Nothing says Christmas than snow gracing Christmas trees.
Don't worry, I'm not wishing for a foot of snow, and not for it to last all winter. Just a white Christmas.
It's not just Main Street decked out in Christmas and Holiday Cheer. Drive around town and you will find Christmas surprises around every corner.
The lighted Methodist church at night is one of peace and hope of the baby Jesus in the manger scene.
Then there is Rosetta Stroys Christmas village of blow mold characters. Each year there are new additions. It reminds me of the Christmas of my youth.
Then there is the Towle house with the modern Christmas inflatable decorations. The night views are even more amazing. Come back next week for a night tour.
The Sunday School kids are preparing for their Christmas Eve service and I do believe there is over 40 kids between the ages of three and twelve involved this year.

More about In-Laws, Outlaws, and Other People (That Should be Shot): It is 6 pm and the Douglas family is busily preparing for their annual Christmas Eve dinner. After robbing a neighborhood liquor store, high strung and irritable Tony, and his dim-witted side-kick Vinny find themselves in need of a hide-out. A comic treasure that is sure to leave you in stitches while celebrating the true meaning of Christmas.
