So it is written in the Gospel according to Luke.
„Now it came about in those days that an order went out from Caesar Augustus that there was to be a numbering of all the world.
This was the first numbering, which was made when Quirinius was ruler of Syria.
And all men went to be numbered, everyone to his town.”
150km, this is the distance between Nazareth and Bethlehem. In the past this meant five days on foot under normal circumstances – but Mary was advanced in pregnancy! And finally arrived there was only a stable for lodging – far from comfortable!
As a child I had often tried to imagine the journey of Mary and Joseph – how could it have been? Did they have a tent with them? Canvas and poles? And traveling fare? Did Mary be in pain? Did Joseph have chafed feet?
Mary perhaps had a shawl around her shoulders, made from striped woven tissue, as it is known from oriental caftans. Maybe, they had a bridle for the mule, modestly decorated with tassels as it can be seen on the harness of Bedouin camels?
Our this year’s Christmas shawl will be inspired by this. It will have crescent shape and we will knit linen and garter stitch. And since Mary and Joseph lived at the orient, we will play around with colors.
Create oriental opulence or a more restrained elegance – it is up to you to!
