The town's Christmas tree has been put up with the lights set to be lit on 1st December.

December is a big month for Bethlehem with thousands of extra tourists set to visit the town where Jesus was born.

Fady Ghattas from the Bethlehem Municipality said: "We are preparing for a long season as usual.

"As it is Bethlehem, we have many events from November all the way through till January."

As well as visiting the holy sites, those visiting Bethlehem will be treated to a Christmas market, Santa's village and a whole host of choirs giving performances.

A Monthly Gift Of $11 Makes A World Of Difference

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
