Pondering on Christmas

Christmas Day 25.12.2004
The sun shone brightly as we made our way to church.
One wonders - what was the weather like in that stable in Bethlehem on the day that Jesus was born?
Were they cold, huddled together for warmth? Did it rain, did it snow or did the sun shine on the Son of God? Were they really glad to see the shepherds, or did they really want privacy, time to rest?
What did they eat? Did someone provide food for them from the Inn?
What happened to those shepherds after they`d seen the baby? Did it change their lives?
Did other people in Bethlehem crowd to see the baby after its birth, or was it to them just another baby?
Do we after Christmas, think more about Christ`s birth throughout the year, or do we just go away?
