Jesus was born in a manger and to represent that people make small cribs in their homes and churches. A crib is usually made of dried hay. There will be small statues of Joseph, Mary, the three kings, shepherds, cattles, donkeys etc. There will also be a small statue of an angel in the crib. It represents the angel who guided the kings and the shepherds who were grazing their cattle to the manger. Jesus' father Joseph was a carpenter and Jesus' mother was Mary.
