Luke 2:1-20 says:
In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. (This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.) And everyone went to his own town to register. So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.
And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.
The birth of Jesus Christ, the TRUE meaning of Christmas!
P.S. I have been watching Norad Tracks Santa. It shows you where it is midnight and it is Christmas Eve Night. It has Santa Claus and where he is. Right now it is 9:28 PM ET and Santa is in South America and he was just in Peru.

Mark, I just watched him go by Atlanta, GA (10:15), Charleston SC (10:20), Knoxville TN (10:25), and Lexington KY (10:30)!
I think I heard some hoof stomps on our roof around midnight. Did you see Santa stop by?
