St. Francis of Assisi is credited with staging the first Nativity Scene in 1223. He got permission from Pope Honorious III to set up a manger with hay and two live animals - an ox and a donkey, in a cave in the Italian village of Grecio. He then invited the villagers to come gaze upon the scene while he preached about "the babe of Bethlehem".
