I don't even know why Christmas songs were brought up in conversation the other day but I asked why they call the people of Bethlehem liars in the song "Oh little town of Bethlehem"
My ex looked at me like I was nuts and asked what the hell I was talking about.
The line in the song is
"Oh little town of Bethlehem, how still we see thee lie"
I thought it was saying how we still see them as liars after all the years. (I was never sure why we were calling them liars in the first place)
My ex died laughing at me and then told me that it meant.
How they "lie still" as in sleeping.
What have you believed since you were a child and didn't realize/learn the truth until you were well into adulthood?
