Here is a photograph of the live Nativity scene at the 12th annual Corning Hometown Christmas. I shall have a slide show of photographs from this event ready for viewing soon and will make an announcement here when it is ready. Click to enlarge.

Hometown Christmas was a great success—due, in part, to some incredibly beautiful weather. The weather had been forecast to be foul, cold, and wet, yet it was sunny and glorious. Today, however, is another matter. It is cold, wet, and windy. Oh well, it is appropriate weather for this time of year.
