Family Christmas celebrations in Bethlehem -1930’s?

Contributed by Kathy Kenny on 07.07.2009:

I am writing a screenplay about my Bethlehem-born grandmother’s life. Can anyone tell me how an Greek Orthodox middle-class family might have celebrated Christmas in the early 1930’s? Religious observances, gift-giving, family get-togethers? Amyone have any special memories that could be part of my story?
