And on the Twelfth Day of Christmas,
the Three Kings, (Wise Men)
had come to the place of the birth of The King of Kings,
I had always wanted a Nativity Set and love to crochet. I found this set online and was fascinated with it, it has no faces, which to me symbolizes the respect to the 4th Commandment of the 10 Commandments of the Holy Bible.
4.) "Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth."
I know they are dolls, even the Amish do not put faces on their dolls.
I worked the 3 wise men from the same free pattern as the Joseph, just used different weights of yarn and kinda winged it. I love the way it all came together.
Maybe I will work some sheep, and a stable in the future. I began working a camel but didn't like the way it was working up. Maybe I can find a camel pattern I like in the next year and add it.
This is the pattern I used, which is simple and cute. Crocheted Nativity Set
Just a little notable about this day.
Epiphany is celebrated 12 days after Christmas on 6th January (or January 19th for some Orthodox Church who have Christmas on 7th January) and is the time when Christians remember the Wise Men (also sometimes called the Three Kings) who visited Jesus.
Some Churches celebrate use Epiphany to celebrate and remember both the visit of the Wise Men and Jesus's Baptism
Epiphany Eve (also known as Twelfth Night) marks the end of the traditional Christmas celebrations and is the time when you were meant to take Christmas decorations down - although some people leave them up until Candlemas
til next time,
