Judith Krummeck, dulcet-voiced announcer of radio station WBJC, is reading the news one recent afternoon. She comments on likely heavy traffic during the imminent late-December weekend:

"The government says that's a record number for Christmas time travel around the region."

And what's the destination of this seasonal time-traveling frenzy? Perhaps the vicinity of a certain famous Middle Eastern manger, a couple of millennia ago? Could this be the explanation for why there was no room at the inn?
