It's been a while since the last time I was in Lobethal over the Christmas season, so we decided to take a drive up there a few weeks ago. It happened to be Pageant Night and the whole town was packed. Parking was difficult to find. Anyhow, we managed to park the car quite a distance away and since we were particularly interested in watching the Living Nativity, we headed straight there.

The Living Nativity performances are held every night in front of the Lutheran Church on Main Street during the Lights of Lobethal festival. It is presented by the Hills Christian Churches and the performances are free, but be sure to get there early to secure a seat. It re-enacts the events of the first Christmas with a real baby "Jesus", Mary, Joseph, shepherds, angels and wise men all in authentic costumes as well as lots and lots of animals. The camels, donkeys, goats, lambs and doves are sure to grab any child's attention. There are also carols accompanying the performances.

More details including dates and times of the performances are available on their website. Be sure to check it out next Christmas.
