The Egypt years by James Tissot

Looking at these paintings I admired the authentic details. Tissot spent many years in Jerusalem and the surrounding Middle East and I wondered what Our Lady and St. Jospeh said to their neighbors about their time in Egypt. The question must have come up.

How about "remember what happened in Bethlehem?" and getting a reply like "hush, don't say such things" (without them mentioning the slaughter at all) "about our noble King Herod!" - and dropping the subject.
