Symbol 02: Manger
A manger (from the French word, meaning "to eat"). Certainly not as stylish or trendy as what new parents would find at an Ikea or Pottery Barn. And definitely one of the last places where you'd expect the newborn King to be resting. This feeding trough—brimming with the smells of manure, dried animal saliva, and unappetizing fodder—is the humble crib of our Savior.
