Every Day Was Christmas - Religious Folk Art

Field review by the editors.

Albemarle, North Carolina

Let's not forget the non-commercial aspects of Christmas. This Nativity scene at the Sweet Home Baptist Church, Albemarle, North Carolina, is part of a folk art environment built by the congregation that features a Christ statue rising on a flagpole. Note: Joseph looks very tired.

Sweet Home Biblical Scenes

Sweet Home Baptist Church. Near Albemarle, not in it. Take Hwy 73 towards Troy, then left on Sweet Home Church Rd. On the east side of town, about a mile past a McDonalds.
