This photo was taken several Christmases ago. There may not have been stones such as these where Jesus was born, but it adds a nice texture.
The Palms or greenery are totally local, and I do not know enough of Bible studies to know if there was greenery such as this....
However I loved the scene, the display and funnily enough when I took the photo with my phone, I got the star of Bethlehem.
