WordFilled Wednesday – Micah 5:2

Department 56 Little Town of Bethlehem 1987

"But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah,
though you are small among the clans of Judah,
out of you will come for me
One who will be ruler over Israel,
whose origins are from of old, from ancient times."
Micah 5:2 NIV

The town of Bethlehem has been celebrated in beloved carols such as "O Little Town of Bethlehem." In 1987 Department 56 produced a version of Little Town of Bethlehem. It consisted of three lighted buildings and various figures.

Then in 2000 a much more extensive set of Little Town of Bethlehem was produced by Department 56. This has many more buildings and figures available, thus it provides much more choice for adding to the set each year it was produced.
