Your Christmas Village & Nativity Scene Shopping Destination

Christmas is a time for celebration, joy, and spreading love. It’s also the season of decorating your home with Christmas trees, beautiful Christmas lights, festive wreaths, and of course, Christmas villages and nativity scenes. At Big Lots, we understand how important these Christmas displays are to our customers during the holiday season. That’s why we have a wide selection of decor depicting quaint Christmas villages and religious nativity scenes that'll make it easy to create a memorable and magical set-up this year.

The Tradition of Nativity Scenes

The tradition of displaying a nativity scene dates back centuries. It all started with St. Francis of Assisi, who created the first known nativity scene in 1223. Over time, this tradition spread all over the world and has become an integral part of Christmas celebrations.

The Art of Christmas Village Displays

Christmas villages, on the other hand, have a more recent origin. In the 19th century, German families started creating miniature winter scenes with holiday-themed houses, figures, and accessories. This trend soon caught on in other European countries and eventually made its way to America. Today, the Christmas village has become a beloved tradition for many families during the holiday season.

At Big Lots, we offer a variety of Christmas displays to help you create your own magical display at home. From traditional designs to modern twists, we have something for every taste and style. Our collections include hand-painted ceramic villages, light-up scenes, and even musical displays.

If you're looking for a classic nativity scene, we have beautifully crafted figurines depicting Mary, Joseph, baby Jesus, and the Three Wise Men. For those who want to create a winter wonderland in their homes, our Christmas village collections are perfect. We have everything from charming cottages and shops to whimsical scenes featuring Santa's workshop and his reindeer. Try adding mini lights around your displays to add some sparkle.
