MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! My favorite field trip thus far has been Bethlehem. Just being in the town that Christ as born in was amazing! I have to admit I was listening to all of my Christmas music for a week before hand (I just need an excuse to listen to it and I will. I love it). We went to some ancient sites, amazing churches, including the Church of the Nativity, an awesome lunch in a tent complete with lots of humus, and then to Shepherd's field.

The birth of Christ most likely happened in something similar.
|The 'Poor Box'. Just like Robin Hood.|

|Oh Little Town of Bethlehem|
It was such an amazing experience to go to Bethlehem. It has such a spirit to it. My Savior came as a little baby to this world to die for me. Walking through the events of New Testament is so cool! Love from Bethlehem!
