Last Saturday, we packed the kids in the car and headed North for the city of Nazareth for the "First Annual Christmas Market". Since I've recently been craving more Christmas festivities, I was excited for our endeavor. And how cool is it to be able to say "I'm going to a Christmas market...in Nazareth!"
It took a little over an hour for us to get there and as soon as we entered town, you noticed Christmas! And by Christmas, I'm talking blow up Santa dolls for sale by street side vendors, Santa photos in shop windows and lots of Santa hats for sale. I suppose, Santa is one of the main "symbols" of Christmas. It was just kind of funny to think that we were in Nazareth, where Jesus was from (afterall, he is referred to as Jesus of Nazareth), it was exactly one week from His birthday and you could tell because Santa was all around.
We happened to park across the street from the Basilica of the Annunciation so we decided to stop there first.
In case any of you missed this on Facebook, I thought this was a very cute and modern twist on the Christmas Story.
