The Nativity Display by Western & Southern Life Insurance Company Since 1939
Beside the Krohn Conservatory in Cincinnati is the Nativity Display that has been sponsored by the Western & Southern Life Insurance Comapny since 1939.
I've been visiting this display every year since I was a child. It's a part of celebrating Christmas in Cincinnati.
All the best for a joyful Christmas,

What a beautiful post, Lois. Thanks for sharing. It is refreshing to see a display like this that has withstood the test of time and politics.
What a wonderful tradition. Thank you for sharing your visit with us. Merry Christmas, Lois.
Very appropriate post to read on Christmas, thanks for sharing Lois. Grenville and I wish you and Kjell and your family a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. We have enjoyed reading of your travels and live this past year.
'smells like a barn'? oh, go home! :)
This is a very meaningful tradition! May we never forget what this day is really all about!(for Christians anyway) Thanks for sharing Lois and enjoy the wonder of today!
What a beautiful nativity display, thank you for sharing!
What a lovely display. Thank you for sharing it! Have a Merry Christmas Lois.
what a wonderful tradition! Merry Christmas!
I recognize this place! ;-) We usually go every Winter's Solstice, but this year my parents were both sick. We're heading down later this week. I heard they changed the train in the Krohn so it's spread out now instead of the music box form. Hope you had a Merry Christmas!
Great post, that company should be commended for being steadfast through the years. I bet there was all sorts of pressures over the years to cut it out of the budget.
(Don't you think "politically correct" is well, wrong?!)
Hope your Christmas time is full of love and laughter and many many blessings!
Thanks for this lovely posting!
Great post! That is just lovely, and a wonderful tradition.
I've never seen anything quite like it! IT'S WONDERFUL!! Such a great tradidion and since 1939!! wow! ...and I personally LOVE the smell of barns...debbie
Lovely Nativity display. You used to see things like this a lot, and I'm glad to see the tradition carried on by this company. Having the live animals would make it come alive.
