The Palestinian flag flutters in front of the Church of the Nativity in the biblical West Bank town of Bethlehem in 2012.

The town of Bethlehem is known to many from accounts in traditional Christmas songs, but what is the city like today? Mark Clark visited and found out.

A suburb of Jerusalem, Bethlehem is still a magical place to explore. Mary's guide brought her to the Church of the Nativity, and to a cave, believed by some to be the birthplace of Jesus.

See photos of this trip, and more, at Mary's website.
