Some religious stories about Christmas include the Bible's description of the visit by wise men to the baby Jesus and the angels visiting the shepherds to sing God's praise. Another religious Christmas story is the story of Jesus' birth in a stable.
The Bible tells the Christmas story of wise men who saw the star in the sky above Jesus' manger. The men followed the star and traveled to Bethlehem to bring gifts to him. After worshipping Jesus, the men returned home in a way that avoided King Herod, who wanted to kill Jesus.
Another religious Christmas story is the story of the angels singing to the shepherds. An angel appeared to the shepherds to announce the birth of Jesus, and a choir of angels appeared to sing God's praises. The shepherds ran to visit the newborn king.
Mary gave birth to Jesus in a stable. The innkeeper did not have room to house Mary and Joseph, so the couple found shelter in a nearby stable. Mary put the baby Jesus in a manger after his birth.
