3. WE MAKE MANGER PRETTY FOR MARY,

Notes: MARY - [M] touches NDS temple, is drawn across forehead, and descends. For a QuickTime video of this sign, see ASL Pro: Mary - 1.
The signs between "||:" and ":||" are to be repeated.
MANGER - (2h), FOs down interlace fingers and then separate while ascending in outward arcs.
