Christmas Eve

Each year we visit the Bethlehem display put on by one of the local Catholic schools. It is a lovely way to spend Christmas Eve. Everyone is in character and are so friendly and joyful, obviously loving every minute of the evening. It's just a happy place to be!

Upon entering the 'city' Ollie had to fill in the register with our family name and number of people in our family, as well as paying our taxes ($5 entry). There are a tonne of activities for the children to participate in as well. They can try their hand at weaving, make Christmas decos and jewellery, there are goats and baby lambs, the wise men and their camels are always fun!
But, the highlight is of course the Nativity with a real baby Jesus. Beautiful!

 Happy Birthday Jesus
