From LONG ISLAND – by Ann Parry (ann-parry.com)

Friday night, I went back in time to A Night in Bethlehem – held at the Lutheran Church of the Resurrection, in Garden City – and experienced a Living Nativity manger scene with Joseph, Mary and baby Jesus, complete with animal stable.

The Advent event is free and open to the public, in Long Island, New York. Visitors enjoy grinding olives, making beeswax candles and other activities at re-creations of shops from two thousand years ago, and it’s a special Christmas treat for the whole family.
