πŸŽ„πŸŒŽπŸ’›πŸ» The Christmas Around the World tour for the Yellow Bears continued to Mexico on Wednesday and Germany on Thursday. πŸŽ„πŸŒŽπŸ’›πŸ» In Mexico we learned about the Las Posadas celebration that commemorates the journey that Mary and Joseph took in search for a safe place for baby Jesus to be born. Two of our Yellow Bears re-enacted a portion of the story where Mary and Joseph go from place to place looking for lodging. πŸŽ„πŸŒŽπŸ’›πŸ» On our trek to Germany, we pretended to fly to France and then take a train ride to Germany. We entered the beautifully decorated sanctuary of GFBC to learn that just like from England, many of our Christmas traditions come from Germany - the Christmas tree, the Advent wreath, music, holiday plays, and several Christmas carols written by German composers. πŸŽ„πŸŒŽπŸ’›πŸ» Merry Christmas from the Yellow Bears!
