As Christians across the world celebrate Christmas, many gather in Bethlehem, in the Israeli occupied West Bank, where Christians believe that Jesus was born. 

Midnight mass is the highlight in Bethlehem, where people queue to enter the Church of the Nativity.

For thousands of Christian tourists who have come from every corner of the world, attending mass here is a dream come true.
