While out photographing this afternoon I revisited a nativity scene in Burton that I enjoy. It’s a manger scene with mannequins for Mary, Joseph, and Baby Jesus, but with real animals in a real manger. While photographing it I noticed signs advertising live re-enactments of the Christmas story that take place every evening through Christmas eve at 6:00.
It sounded like fun, so Susan and I bundled up the boys and went. It was pretty fun, although it was a bit cold, hard to hear, and see everything that was going on. It was nice and short though, and they even served donuts and hot chocolate after it was finished. We hope to do it again next year.
