NOTE: updated 2017 info at end of post

Friday night, I went back in time to A Night in Bethlehem, where visitors enjoyed grinding olivesmaking beeswax candles and other activities at re-creations of shops from two thousand years ago, and experienced a Living Nativity manger scene with Joseph, Mary and baby Jesus, complete with animal stable.

Garden City, New York, USA. December 6, 2013. Visitors experience the nativity scene at the manger, with Mary, Joseph, and baby Jesus, the Holy Family, at A Night in Bethlehem, an annual Advent at the Lutheran Church of the Resurrection, on Long Island, on December 6, 7, and 8.
