The story of the Jesus’s birth is called the nativity from Christian religion.
Two thousand years ago in the town of Nazareth, Mary and husband Joseph, a carpenter, was visited by an angel who told them that they have been chosen to have a special baby, God’s son can they must call him Jesus.
They where told they should travel to Bethlehem, where Joseph came from. It took days and Mary had to ride on a donkey to get them there.
When they arrived in Bethlehem it was very busy and they could not find a place to stay. One kind innkeeper had a stable where he kept his animals and let them stay there.
It was in the stable that Jesus was born. He was wrapped in strips of cloth and laid in a manger of hay.
Shepherds on a hillside over Bethlehem were visited by an angel to give them the message that the Son of God had been born in a stable near by.
The shepherds wanted to visit the baby and travel to see Him. They knelt down and worshipped Him and told Mary and Joseph that Jesus will be the Saviour of the world.
Further away Wise Men noticed a new star in the sky shinning so brightly. They new it was a special star and that it meant that a great ruler had been born.
They first travelled to Jerusalem to see King Herod as they through the baby would be in the palace. King Herod said that he would like to see the baby himself and to let him know when they had found him. He was worried that this new ruler would want to take the throne and be King himself.
The Wise Men found Jesus by following the star. They knelt down and worshipped Him. They gave gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. That night they all had the same dream warning them not to go back to King Herod as he wanted to kill Jesus.
The Wise Men left without going back to see King Herod. Joseph then also had a dream telling him to take Mary and Jesus to Egypt as King Herod had ordered for Jesus to be killed.
When King Herod realised the Wise Men were not coming back he ordered for all the baby boys to be killed in Bethlehem. He did not find Jesus as he was already safe.

The story of Father Christmas
The story of Father Christmas starts with a man called Nicholas. Nicholas’ parents were very rich and died when his was young. He was very kind and would give secret gifts to people who would need it.
The legend tells us that Nicholas came across a poor man with three daughters. The man had such little money he couldn’t afford for his daughters to get married.
One night Nicholas secretly dropped a bag a coal down the chimney. It just so happened that the gold fell into a sock that was hanging on the fireplace to dry. With the gold, one of the daughters were able to get married.
Nicholas then dropped another bag in order for the seconded daughter to get married.
The man was delighted but he was determined to see who was doing this. So one night he hid by the fire and saw Nicholas drop another bag. Nicholas begged the man not to tell anyone but word got out and whenever someone found a secret gift they thought it was from them.
Because of his kindness Nicholas was made a Saint. St. Nicholas.
