We’ve all seen the Nativity and know the story of Mary and Joseph’s plight in Bethlehem that very first Christmas. Cold, hungry, and in need of shelter after a long day’s travel, they were turned away from the inn and forced, instead, to stop for the night in a lowly stable. There, thanks to the straw and animals, they were able to draw some warmth and, of course, the miracle of Christ’s birth occurred: the very first Christmas.
Unlike most foods, which we either really enjoy but shouldn’t eat so much of, or dislike but should eat more of, the blueberry is both sweetly delicious *and* healthful. Perhaps that explains why this otherwise humble, little fruit is so celebrated.
