Illustrations: The drawings and bricolage in this video are by children of Bethlehem. Palestinian school children designed their own Christmas cards in response to a competition called by the WCC.
The photos were taken by Sean Hawkey during a recent visit to the Holy Land. Two others are by volunteers of the Ecumenical Accompaniment Programme in Palestine and Israel taken at Cordoba kindergarten in Hebron in 2014 (by N. Forsstroem) and at Tawayel school in Tel al Khasaba (by T. Kopra).
Video production: Nikos Kosmidis
