People all over the country will be excitedly getting their Christmas decorations out now we are firmly into Advent, with many homes no doubt dusting off a nativity scene and placing it in a prime position.
However, while these miniature depictions of the birth of baby Jesus are typically made from wood or plastic, a number of decidedly different nativities will be on show up and down Britain this year - because they're made from colourful yarn.
Indeed, knitivities - where all the characters and some of the props are knitted - have been spotted across the country and are being widely lauded as a sweetly rustic take on these tradition pieces of festive decor.
St Mary's Church in the Berkshire parish of Shaw-cum-Donnington has its own knitivity after resident Christine Willetts organised a project to make one. She told Newbury Today she had noticed how decrepit the church's old scene was and so asked the Barnabus bereavement group if they would like to help her stitch a new one.
The result was blessed by Reverend Marion Wood last weekend - and she says she loves the knitted sheep, shepherds and baby Jesus.
"It's absolutely beautiful and the idea is that it can be used for services for children to tell the nativity story," she enthused.
Elsewhere, the Derbyshire town of Chapel-en-le-Frith also has a knitivity thanks to crafting group Knitwits, who are based at local bookshop Reading Matters.
Woolly depictions of wise men, animals and of course the son of God are all proudly on display in the shop window for all to see.
However, perhaps the most striking example of this trend was on display at last month's Harrogate Knitting & Stitching show, where Anne Iles and Alison Spurrell presented a life-sized knitivity.
They explained the project is dedicated to the memory of a member of their Knutty Knitters group, who recently died from cancer.
Have you spotted any cute knitted nativity scenes this year?
