|We have done this on a couple of other sites, and I was thinking about it so I thought I'd start it. Many of you know how to do this. For those that haven't done it before, it is an offering from farm or garden that we can bring to the manger.|
We have some newborn calves that could lay in close and share their warmth.

|Do you really think all those wise men and shepherds were strictly on time?|

|Well, the wise men didn't get there until Jan 6th - or at least that is the way it is down here. It is the main day for giving gifts to children and the holiday is named after the 3 kings. I think in English it is Epiphany. So, seems you have until then to load up the manger |
I have tamales and ponche (a non alcoholic hot fruit punch) that are traditionally served at the posadas.
A day without sunshine is like, you know, night.

|When I was a kid, (and that's a LONG time ago, lol) we used to call it 3 Kings day, and we always kept our Christmas tree up until at least then. Of course it was a real tree, and we always put it up on Christmas Eve day. |
Jonna, I have some good friends from Mexico, and I had some Ponche on Chistmas eve, and again on New Year's Eve. It's really good.
