A Baby Is Born In Bethlehem

25 Dec

News Flash: The most unusual thing happened today in the village of Bethlehem. A baby was born to a Nazareth couple and the event caused such an uproar that Bethlehem officials found it necessary to close down streets in order to control big crowds. In the late morning, within hours of the birth of a baby boy, an entourage from the East arrived bearing expensive gifts. One of the distinguished visitors said the traveling group had followed a bright star for weeks until it finally stopped over the place where the child was born. This reporter has never seen nor heard of that phenomenon before. Another surprise was the appearance of field shepherds, groups of them, who reported a large cluster of angels in the sky. These angels were instrumental, they reported, in publicizing this otherwise common event. Who the parents are remains a mystery. They do not appear to be wealthy, but it may be significant that when the spectators passed close to the straw bed where the baby slept, they bowed or knelt as if before royalty. If you plan to visit the village, I recommend making overnight plans in one of the neighboring villages since there are no vacant rooms here. No other birth has ever attracted public crowds like the birth of this boy child. Perhaps he is someone great. Surely time will tell. Stay tuned for further developments.
