The people in the world ran behind the temporary things to satisfy their desires through involving themselves in sins. Pride, greed, lust, envy, gluttony, wrath, and sloth spread everywhere even though god created the human for the sake of his unconditional love on them. Therefore, God sent his son to this human world in order to save the people from their sins.

Accordingly 2,000 years ago a young woman from the town of Nazareth named Mary was visited by an angel named Gabriel and was told that, she would have a son named Jesus and he would be the Son of God. At this time, Mary was engaged to her soon-to-be husband Joseph. So Joseph got hurt and confused. Then angel Gabriel visited Joseph and told him that Mary would be pregnant from the Lord and that she would have a son named Jesus who would save the people from their sins. 

Mary and Joseph had to travel to Bethlehem because of an order from the Roman emperor. After travelling for several days, Mary and Joseph arrived in Bethlehem and they didn’t have a place to stay. The inns were full. Seeing the situation of Mary, an owner of an inn told Joseph that they could stay in his stable. 

Mary and Joseph settled down on the hay in a stable with animals sleeping. The baby Jesus was born in the stable and they placed him on a manger.

Then an angel appeared to shepherds who were watching their flocks in the fields near Bethlehem and told them the good news of the birth of the Savior and Messiah, Jesus Christ. The shepherds immediately went to find baby Jesus, which the angels told them they would find sleeping in the manger. 

After some time, three wise men called magi saw the brilliant star in that sky that rested over where Jesus was born. The three wise men travelled from a distant eastern country to find the new king and they continued to Bethlehem and found Jesus right where the star pointed. They knelt and worshipped the Savior and gave him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. 

So the birth of this “Prince of Peace” is celebrated as Christmas every year on 25th of December during the coldest season of the year.
