2020 Holiday Guide

November 29, 2020

A favorite Christmas tradition for many is to visit a living nativity scene or show with the family. It's an opportunity to step back in time to experience what it was like during the birth of Jesus over 2000 years ago. This holiday season, honor the true meaning of Christmas at these live nativities in Hickory, Lenoir, Taylorsville, Valdese and the surrounding area of Western North Carolina.
