During the Christmas holidays, Nativity scenes are often the centerpiece of churches and homes. The simple biblical description of newborn Jesus being laid in a manger has been an inspiration for artists since at least the fourth century. In 1223, St. Francis of Assisi is believed to have created the first créche (derived from an Old French word for “manger” or “crib”).

The standard four-bar cancellation marks the date and location of stamp issuance: November 3, 2016, Washington, D.C. 20066.
