Camel Beauty Contest
As everyone familiar with the story of the first Christmas is aware, Jesus was born in Bethlehem in the desert. To celebrate this Christmas season, I was planning on going to a Camel Beauty Contest. (Click here read about it.) This annual camel festival takes place in Al Dahfra, about a two-hour drive from us. It's part of a two-week festival. This contest, the biggest in the world, has over $26 million in prizes. I was hoping to go last year, but never got around to it and this year, and was too beat to drag the kids there to look at some camels. I kind of regret not going again. Hopefully, I'll make it next year.
