Day 5: Mary and Joseph Travel to Bethlehem
Start using your Christmas Countdown Book on December 1st. Today would be presented on December 5th. There will be a different subject for each day until Christmas Day, December 25th. The purpose of this Christmas Countdown Book is to help you remember and focus on Jesus Christ during the Christmas season!
