Every Christmas, Daddy tells me the story of the very first Christmas when
Jesus was born. Daddy told me the Bible teaches that Jesus is God's son,
and God sent Jesus to earth on Christmas Day about two thousand years ago.
The man and woman who took care of Jesus were called Joseph and Mary. When
Jesus was born, Daddy said that angels came and told some shepherds the
news of Jesus' birth. The shepherds left their sheep and went to see Jesus
on that very first Christmas.
Each Christmas, my family buys gifts for each other, and we put them under
our tree until Christmas morning when we open them. Mommy said that giving
helps us to remember how God gave his Son as a gift to the world. This year
I am giving Buster a new bone, even though Buster does not know what Christmas
is. I cannot wait until Christmas because then I will open all of my presents
and eat a big Christmas dinner that Mommy will make.
