The first Christmas is historical fact. Some of the first witnesses of Jesus’ birth were pagan magicians, shunned characters that a religious Jew would not have put into their story if it weren’t true. The first Christmas, though predicted by prophets, was still unexpected. He was born in a poor town, slept in a manger, hung out with tax collectors and sinners, and was crucified as king of the Jews. We can choose to be consumed by our self like Herod who secured his own power and kingdom, or the religious leaders who knew the prophecies but did nothing. Else, we can be like the wise men who in their wisdom knew that the maker of the stars and king of kings lay in a manger: Jesus, the Son of Mary.
