Albany- It's easy to find movies about someone who stole Christmas or somebody who saved Christmas.

But many South Georgians get together to tell about the people who started Christmas. The congregation at Central Baptist Church in Albany has performed a live nativity scene for 26 years.

Santa is there, but he's there to share the story of Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus.

"We want to tell the true story of Christmas and in a delightful way," said Pastor Edd Spurlock. "We also have a Christmas Carol sing, you can even do that in schools anymore, and we want people to come and feel free to do that."

The live nativity scene continues through Sunday at 7 p.m. each night. You can also pet the animals at the manger scene and have your picture taken with Santa.
