Christmas Shepherd Costumes

Naturally, the baby Jesus is the star of the Christmas pageant but what you'll find the most of are participants dressed in Shepherd costumes. When Jesus was born, Shepherds came from far and wide to Bethlehem to see the newborn son of God. Although not every person in attendance was a shepherd, the robe style of dress was what men wore in ancient times thus we associate Shepherd's clothes with Christmas pageants.

When churches and communities all over the world celebrate the Nativity, participants dress in Shepherd's costumes. More elaborate costumes are made to represent the three wise men, Gaspar, Melchoir and Balthasar who were more educated and from a higher class than the shepherds.

The clothing that Shepherds wore plays a very important role in reenacting stories from the Bible. In addition to being the common dress, the frock has symbolic meaning in Christianity. The analogy that Jesus watches over his followers as shepherds tend to their flock of sheep is one with which we are all familiar. Priest, who shepherd their congregation still wear robes of similar style today.
