This was a one day tour with Crosby Tours.   For more information, you can click here.  
First we visited Christkindlemarkt, two huge tents filled with everything you can think of
for Christmas.  There was also food and entertainment.  After that, we took a walking tour
of the town of Bethlehem.  After 5 p.m., we were taken around the area to see the city
dressed in  lights.

The Putz.  A narration of the birth of Christ.  As the story was being narrated, a figurine on the stage
would be illuminated.  It was said that the figurines were hand crafted in Germany.
