Charles Beadle and Jane Osborn began with just two nativity scenes when they got married 35 years ago.

That quickly grew to over over 1,000 today.

Their nativities are from around the world-- stretching from the Middle East to South America-- and almost every stop in between.

The figurines are both hand and machine-made, mostly from olive wood, ceramic, glass and tin.

"it's amazing what different people in different cultures have done to portray the nativity scene," said Jane Osborn, of Valdosta. "For instance, we had one that was done by an artist in the desert southwest, and the whole thing is in terracotta."

There are so many scenes that the couple displays their nativity collection throughout the year.
