Last year, Chris and Ali debuted their first Nativity Scene made from Legos. This year, they started earlier, planned better, and enlarged their panorama to encompass the entire city of Bethlehem.
However, Lego isn’t exactly a religious company, seeing as how they have custom sets for every possible historical and fictional setting, but not a single biblical one.
So, when constructing Jesus’ birth, you have to make do with the bricks you’re dealt.
Chris and Ali did a great job, considering. In fact, with just a few minor tweaks here and there, they managed to construct a visualization of many of our favorite Christmas songs.
“O little town of Bethlehem, how still we see thee lie!
Yet in thy dark streets shineth,
A Christmas tree and lights,
Where barmaids and King Arthur’s Court all meet in thee tonight.”
“Away in the manger, no crib for a bed,
no patterned comforter to lay his sweet head.”
“What Child is This, who laid to rest, in a treasure chest is sleeping?
“Hark the Herald Angel Sings, glory to the newborn King!
“We three kings of Orient are, Bearing gifts we traverse afar.
O magic wand of wonder, magic wand of night, magic wand that shines but not so bright,
To the dining room leading, not proceeding, guide us to thy glow-in-the-dark Light.
We three kings, scurry away, avoiding Herod, and his extra-large crown,
“Said the RobotSheep to the little boy, do you hear what I hear?
and a Dragon eating lunch.”
Merry Christmas from Chris and Ali!!!
