Staff writer and photographer For Beulah “Bootie” Payton, the Christmas season starts the day after Halloween, Nov. 1. That’s when she puts up her first nativity scene. It’s a more traditional one that’s roughly three feet in length. It’s adorned with gold tinsel garland and sits tastefully atop a wooden hutch in the living room of her Eminence home. To some, it may seem a bit early to start decorating but when there are nearly 200 more to place, the sooner the better. Payton a lifelong Eminence native, is the proud owner of 186 nativity scenes.
