Nativity Today is Christmas.  It is December 25th.  On Christmas Day we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.  In the Christian religion, Jesus Christ is God.  He came to earth as a human.  He came to show us God's love.

On Christmas we give gifts to others.  We go to church and sing Christmas carols.  A Christmas carol is a song that is about the birth of Jesus.

When Jesus was born, there was a bright star in the sky.  The bright star showed where Jesus was born.  Jesus was born in Bethlehem.  He was born in a stable in Bethlehem.  He wasn't born in a house.  He wasn't born in an inn.  He was born in a stable.  A stable is a house for animals.  There wasn't a crib for him.  A crib is a bed for babies.  His mother used a manger as a bed for him.  A manger is a box where they put animals' food.  It was a box with hay in it probably.

Shepherds, men who take care of sheep, came to see the baby.  Wise men came to see the baby.  They were from countries to the east of Israel.  They came to give the baby gifts.  They gave the baby gold, frankincense, and myrrh.

Today my mom and I went Christmas shopping.  Christmas is December 25th.  It is a national holiday in the United States.  Most people do not have to work on Christmas.

On Christmas, we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.  We celebrate Christmas by giving gifts to others.  Today my mom bought gifts for her great-grandchildren.  Her great-grandchildren are the children of her grandchildren.  She has 15 great-grandchildren.

Every year she buys her grandchildren and her great-grandchildren ornaments.  Ornaments are small statues we put on our Christmas trees.  We put them on our Christmas trees to decorate them.

We bought lots of ornaments to put on our Christmas trees.  My mom and I will wrap the ornaments.  We will put colored paper around them.  We will put bows on them.  The great-grandchildren will open the presents.  The great-grandchildren will hang the ornaments on the tree.

My mom bought other Christmas presents.  I can't tell you what the other presents are.  They are a secret.  They are a secret so they can be a surprise on Christmas.
