This evening, we traveled to Bethlehem.
My parents' church hosted the event, and it was so much fun for everyone! The town was busy and bustling. There were shops to visit and crafts to make - moneybags, wreaths, and tin tableware. Bread was plentiful, and my stomach still hurts from eating too much challah!

My favourite part of the evening was stepping out of the bustling busyness, and into the stable where the babe was. The animals were docile, and it was so peaceful. I mean, it was still a gymnasium, but for a few quiet moments I could pause to reflect on what it might have been like that night, thousands of years ago when the Christ came to earth.
