Homestead Traditions

Every Christmas at the McDaniel Homestead, Luke 2 is reenacted.  
 
We go all out.
 
Papa is the narrator.
All willing participants get parts.  Little Mary was… Mary.  Lydia was an angel. Grant was the innkeeper. 


Paul was a shepherd, Jared was Joseph.

 The Padre was the donkey (the dog was the first choice, but he didn’t quite work out).

James took both the roll of shepherd and a pig.  We weren’t exactly kosher.

 
I was part of the angelic host.
I decided to go for a dramatic retelling this year.  

The “sheep” was enthralled.
 

 

 
The Cast!
Yesterday, Jared and I drove from Jared’s grandparent’s house to my parent’s house.  Time for Christmas, Round II!
