It was definitely crowded, and COLD, but it was an AMAZING experience. We visited and got a stamp from each booth. The girls were able to try a sample, smell a scent, do an activity, etc., at almost every booth. They also collected a bead from every few booths to make a bracelet. There were Jewish dancers in the courtyard. Peanut loved seeing all the live animals. They each got a block of wood from the blacksmith with a heart/star shape burnt on it. Hot chocolate was served right before the manger scene. It was well worth fighting the crowd and the cold weather.
