Christmas Eve Tradition

Baby in waiting, Charleston, SC  
Each year the newborn nursery nurses at Bon Secours St. Francis Hospital make sure there is one extra crib ready for a special guest. The manger in the nativity scene at the front of the hospital has been empty. According to tradition the nurses call Security to unlock the front door at midnight and they carry the baby out and lay Him in the manger.

Special thanks to all the healthcare workers, firemen/women, police officers, service workers etc. who work special holidays like this so the rest of us can celebrate.

Merry Christmas everyone!
