Yesterday's question was: What is a manger? (Bonus: What is it made of?)
Did you say a feeding trough made out of wood? You would be right on one part, but not the other.
(1) A manger is a feed trough found in a stable. In Bible times mangers were made from clay mixed with straw or from stones held together with mud; sometimes they were carved in natural outcroppings of rock.

That poor babe (Our Lord Jesus) was laid in such a hard place. I always thought (as you probably did) that he had a nice straw bed. Take a minute and go to the above referenced site and take a look at the photo of what he was probably laid in.
The reference for this is Luke 2:7
Day 9 Question:
In what type of structure was Jesus born?
