There is a story about Jesus’s birth- Jesus was born of a virgin- Mary who got pregnant because of the holy spirit. The God even sent his messengers Garber to tell Joseph that he shouldn’t discard Mary because Mary had premarital pregnancy and married her, God called the child “Jesus”, which meant to save his people from their sins.
When Mary would soon gave birth, the Roman government ordered that all the people who went to Bethlehem should declare their domicile.Joseph and Mary had to obey the rule.
When they reached Bethlehem, it was dark, but they could not find a hotel, but only a stable to have a short stay. Just at that time, Jesus was born!Then Mary had to give birth to Jesus on the manger.In honor of the birth of Jesus, people of the United States will celebrate Christmas on December 25 and celebrate the birth of Jesus every year.
Christmas is to commemorate the birth of Jesus on December 25, but no one knows the real date of birth.In the 19th century, the popularity of Christmas cards and the advent of Santa Claus began to catch on.
