And so it was, that, while
they were there (In the City of David), the days were
accomplished that she should be delivered.
And she brought forth her
firstborn son, and wrapped him
in swaddling clothes, and laid
him in a manger; because there
was no room for them in the inn.
And there were in the
same country shepherds abiding
in the field, keeping watch over
their flock by night.
And, lo, the angel of the
Lord came upon them, and the
glory of the Lord shone round
about them: and they were sore afraid.
And the angel said unto
them, Fear not: for, behold, I
bring you good tidings of great
joy, which shall be to all people.
For unto you is born this
day in the city of David a Saviour,
which is Christ the Lord.
And this shall be a sign unto you;
Ye shall find the babe
wrapped in swaddling clothes,
lying in a manger.
And suddenly there was
with the angel a multitude of the
heavenly host praising God, and saying,
Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace, good
will toward men.
St. Luke 2:6-14 (KJV)
With all that’s going on today–the gifts, the food, the fun–let us not forget that the real meaning of Christmas is Christ.
“Merry Christmas, and Happy Birthday Jesus!!!” (Our Lord and Saviour.)
