Journey to Bethlehem

This weekend we went to Journey to Bethlehem. A local church transforms their parking lot into Bethlehem during the time of Christ's birth. The town is complete with Roman soldiers, shepherds, camels, peddlers, and Angels singing of Christ's birth, you also see Mary, Jospeh & the baby Jesus in the stable. We were given sheckles at the entrance, and throughout the town there were things we could buy with our money, and occasionally a tax collector would come to collect the tax. BigZabba was wide eyed when Joseph & Mary passed by on their donkey, when the Angel Gabriel announced Jesus' birth, & when she saw baby Jesus in the stable. It was a fun & memorable evening.
