Sharon, I loved this! Thank you for sharing. 😀 And, Merry Christmas to you and Steve.


My husband’s family lived in Bethlehem here in Pennsylvania for their entire life. We now live in a little town on the border of Bethlehem. It is, of course, Christmas City and has a large lighted star on the mountain south of the city. There are horse drawn carriage rides and a Moravian Putz with hand carved figurines which are several hundreds of years old. The Moravian Church has “shows” when a narrator tells the Christmas story and a light is centered on the figurines which are appropriate to that part of the story. It is very moving. I took my children and the Girl Scout troops and my kindergarten class when I taught. So this song always makes me think of our local “little town of Bethlehem”. Thank you for sharing.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
