Bethlehem is not just a scene from Christmas cards or a school play. It is also a site of pilgrimage for Christians from all over the world, and a historical backdrop for the first Christmas. While there are still large numbers of non-Christian inhabitants of the Middle East, the relationship between local roots and Christian heritage remains an important part of the local identity and culture. This context lends contemporary celebrations more meaning.
Christmas Bethlehem background
A Christmas Bethlehem background can be an inspirational image for a family’s home. The star of Bethlehem shines in a starry night sky, marking the birthplace of Jesus. The wallpaper is a stunning mix of desert hills and palm trees, as well as subtle dust particles. This is a beautiful choice for a nativity play or card, or a personal photo. The star is a classic symbol of the Nativity.
