Beyond shepherds

“And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

“And there were in the same country imperial stormtroopers abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.”

(Not precisely Luke 2:7-8)

    Hm. You’d kind of expect Imperial Stormtroopers = Roman centurions, except in that photograph, it looks more like they’re Manger Security Detail.

    I remember one of my uncles patiently explaining to his son why a toy pig probably wasn’t the best addition to a Nativity scene one year.
