A Conversation for Christmas in Lebanon: The Nativity Crib

How interesting

You're right. I hadn't previously given much thought to Christmas in the Lebanon! Aren't Christmas traditions delightful? Well, any holiday where people go all out I suppose.

I particularly enjoyed the idea of the cress jungle.

Incidently, our church was always terminally progressive, and so I'd always been told that Jesus was born in a cave, for the reason that caves were used as stables in that part of the world at that time.

How interesting

Hi Solnushka,
My apologies for not having subscribed to my own entry smiley - rolleyes I only just saw this post of yours. Thank you for the comment - and piquing my interest. Would you mind saying which church you mean? It fascinates me how religion can bind and separate across the world...
smiley - ok

How interesting

Anglican. But when I tell you it was the first shared church in the UK (ie the same building used for Anglican's Catholics and Methodists), you'll know what I mean about terminally progressive...
