Christ is the reason for the season, hope you know that?
Christmas is an annual festival commemorating the birth of Jesus Christ, observed primarily on December 25 by Christians.
Almost 2,000 years ago a young woman from the town of Nazareth named Mary was visited by an angel named Gabriel.
Gabriel told the Jewish woman that she would have a son named Jesus and that he would be the Son of God.
At this time, Mary was engaged to her soon-to-be husband Joseph. When told Joseph he was hurt and confused because he did not believe Mary. The angel Gabriel visited Joseph and told him that Mary would be pregnant from the Lord and that she would have a son named Jesus who would save the people from their sins.
Mary and Joseph had to travel to Bethlehem because of an order from the Roman emperor that a census, or record, of all people, be taken in their hometown.
After traveling pregnant on a donkey for several days, Mary and Joseph arrived in Bethlehem and were told that there were no places to stay. The inns were full. Seeing that Mary was due at any moment, an owner of an inn told Joseph that they could stay in his stable.
Mary went into labor and Jesus was born in the stable. The only place for the sleeping baby to rest was most likely in the animals’ trough, known as the manger.
