Luke Chapter 2 1-17
"And it came to pass in those days that a decree went out from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed. And all went to be taxed, everyone to his own city.
And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, unto the city of David which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David. To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.
And so it was, that while they were there that she should be delivered.
And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manager; because there was no room for him in the inn."

Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year to all out friends & families throughout the world!
