Christmas is more than fair holidays, Father Christmas and presents. To celebrate and delight in the season, one should remember its origins because the loyal Christmas anecdote is found in the Holy Bible with the Birth of Jesus Christ. The Child, Born that night over two thousand years ago, is the Light of the World, King of Kings and the Son of God.

The Christmas legend, of Angels and Mary, a young Jewish girl from Galilee who gave Birth to a King in a humble stable, the simple, hard-working shepherds who came to savor Jesus, the colorful Star of Bethlehem and the Wise Men who followed it bearing gifts makes the festive season special because the Birth was a miracle and, it gave the world a Savior.

The Birth of Jesus begins with a reference to Caesar Augustus, Emperor of the much, Roman Empire and, of Jesus, a Jewish, Baby Boy Born into poverty. The disagreement couldn't be greater.

"And so it came to pass in those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. And everyone went to their enjoy town to register. So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem, the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. He went to register with Mary who also, was a descendent of King David and of the tribe of Judah. Mary was expecting a Child. While there, the time came for the Baby to be Born."

The joyous event of the Birth of Jesus was announced by an Angel to lowly shepherds accompanied by Angelic praise. The shimmering Star of Bethlehem revealed the Birth to the Gentile (non-Jewish), Wise Men who came to bow and admire the newborn King. The Gentiles later, would get up most of the Christian world because, from that foundation, Christianity grew, sending off branches in many directions from faded Jerusalem.

God chose for His Son to be born in a humble stable, and placed in an animal feeding-trough for a Crib surrounded by farm animals. Jesus came into this world in humility, simplicity and in poverty to identify with the abominable, and the down-trodden. And, Mary, the Mother of Jesus, is a unbelievable example of humility, courage, faith and willingness to do God's Will.

That humble stable was filled with the Presence of God. Through His Son, Jesus Christ, the Savior, God gave us a plot to inherit the resplendent, Kingdom of God. Jesus Christ, the founder of Christianity, taught people to esteem God, to savor their neighbor and fellow-man, to treat other people as they themselves wish to be treated. He preached equality, care for the dilapidated and needy, He fought sin, yet He did not disfavor contemptible people. He was willing to forgive and to heal and He taught that repentance and faith could build people. The Apostles and other early Christians went everywhere carrying the Message of Jesus and the Word of God to all continents and all peoples.

The Wise Men remind us that Christmas is a time for giving. It is a time for peace and goodwill to all as we spy forward to the joy of the season. And, Christmas Day is marked by church services and the conventional, Christmas table spread out before us where we can all sit down together with the family to devour a Christmas feast that brings joy and happiness to every heart.

The Christmas yarn also, has its very believe stale pageantry, pretty musty customs and feasting making everything more contented and magnificent that brings out the best in all of us. For many children around the world, it is a time for gifts when Father Christmas arrives on a sleigh pulled by reindeer in the early hours of Christmas morning placing presents in stockings, by their beds or in front of the family Christmas tree.

And, the spirit of Christmas embodies many amazing qualities that can be felt and seen everywhere throughout the world. Most places of work will gain Christmas parties, homes, shops, business offices, streets and town centers are decorated with Nativity scenes, Christmas trees and lustrous, colored lights. And, shopping centers become busier with people buying gifts as they play the feeble Christmas Carols throughout the day, while people will often impart them out in the streets to assist raise money for charities.

One of the most well-known Christmas Carols of all time, mute Night is a song that is heavenly and yet, so much, it touches people with its simple Christian message of shapely peace. Written by Father Joseph Mohr in 1816 its music was added by choir director, Franz Xavier Gruber in 1818.

In the slight, alpine, village church of Saint Nicholas in Oberndorf, Austria, this timeless classic was heard for the first time as Father, Joseph Mohr and Franz Xavier Gruber, accompanied by the choir and a guitar, sang "Stille Nacht! Heilige Nacht! (peaceful Night, Holy Night) . From here, calm Night went on to have such an impact around the world, it even caused a World War One battle to temporarily discontinue, as British and German soldiers sang of ravishing peace from their trenches on Christmas Eve.
