This woman has collected 800 nativity sets

By CNN

Modesto, Calif. - A California woman is opening up her home so people can see her unique collection of nativity sets.

Toni Conway spent a month setting up her Modesto home so hundreds of people can walk through and see her collection.

She has 800 nativity sets, KTXL reported.

Conway's love for the sets started 56 years ago after she became a Christian and married her husband.

Her nativity sets include cowboys, pets and characters from the "Peanuts" comic, but Conway says her favorite is the nativity scene featuring her children and grandchildren. 

"I tell everyone, 'No more nativities,' and 'I'm not going to buy any more unless they are very unique.' But I still added 50 this year," Conway said.

Every nativity is clearly marked and recorded in her handmade encyclopedia, where she marks if it was a gift or one she bought.
