Include live animals, a first-century Jerusalem marketplace, costumed townspeople, camel rides for kids and hot drinks for all

During Christmastime, put on a 20-minute outdoor dramatic depiction of Jesus’ birth, complete with live goats, sheep, a donkey and a camel. Go bigger, and set up an entire first-century Jerusalem marketplace, complete with Roman soldiers and townspeople discussing rumors of the birth of a King. Offer camel or donkey rides for kids and coffee, hot apple cider or hot chocolate to guests.
