November 29, 2014

Our stake is awesome. They put on a wonderful evening called "A Night in Bethlehem". They decorated the gym to look like Bethlehem, including authentic looking stalls with shop keepers selling their wares, a silhouette of the old city on the walls, people dressed as roman sentries and other people from that time, and a live nativity that was put on every half hour. We were each given a little satchel filled with "gems" that we could spend at the stalls, buying everything from apples, olives, and bread with honey, to cookies and desserts, and even a little dreidel game. We had to pay our taxes, though, which always stinks :) I loved it, and if they put it on next year, I'll be dressing up!
