Story of Christmas
King Ceaser Augustus ordered a census in his kingdom whereby everyone had to go to the place where they were registered. In Nazareth, there lived a carpenter called Joseph who was engaged to marry a girl called Mary. One night an angel appeared to Mary and told her that she would bear a child who was the son of God come to Earth as a savior. Joseph married Mary when the Angel appeared to him too. They had to travel to Bethlehem for the census while Mary was pregnant. They finally reached Bethlehem.
The next night Jesus was born. The sky was lit by a bright shining star over Bethlehem which was seen by the shepherds close by and three Kings who knew this to be a sign. The Kings blessed the baby with gold, frankincense, and myrrh.
This is usually the scenery of the crib that Christians like to display.
