Did Jesus make angels in the winter snow?

In his inquisitive and memorable song "Boy Like Me," Rich Mullins asks of Jesus, "Did you ever make angels in the winter snow?"

It certainly is possible that the Child of Bethlehem did so, for it does snow with some regularity in the Holy Land. Riding through the Holy Land on a bus, I was greatly surprised to see how unlike a desert the Holy Land is.

Consider this picture of Manger Square taken yesterday and shared by the Facebook group Christmas in Bethlehem:

As much as I would like to be back in the Holy Land, it seems I left just in time. So far, this continues to be my first winter without seeing any snow in person.
