Some strange creatures have come to visit. A camel and a cow and a donkey and some sheep.
And some little shepherds made their way into my house, too. They said they lived in the fields nearby and while they were keeping watch over their flocks, an angel of the Lord appeared to them and they were terrified. But the angel told them not to be afraid because he was bringing good news of great joy for all the people.
A Savior had been born in Bethlehem, so they hurried off and found him. He was lying in a manger, just like the angel said. He was wrapped in swaddling clothes, too, which means he wasn't wearing socks.
That's a good thing, because if I stole his stocking and chewed it up, I'd really be in trouble.
