White Christmas (for W Day at ABC Wednesday) ?
In Jerusalem today it was hot enough for some tourists to change into their shorts.
Winter warmth is nice so I took advantage of the 20 C temps and went to walk in the Old City, in search of signs of Christmas.

Hey, there are doors for Monday Doorways meme too!
"Welcome to my shop, come in," they say.

Not surprisingly, the Christian Information Center has a manger scene.
A huge Santa Claus!
In the background is the Lutheran Johanniter Hospiz (the German Hospice of the Order of St. John) with the order's characteristic cross.
A Catholic monk walks down St. Francis Street.
Those little girls' red dresses--would the girls be dressing up as Mrs. Claus?
Chanuka is starting tonight and I'll post some of those photos during the 8-day holiday.
Happy Festival of Lights!
