Mary was really scared when the angel came to her. There was one main angel called Gabriel. He was just a boy angel, he had wings and he was all white. The angel said you're gonna have a special baby, and it was God's Son. She was quite excited, a bit scared and she was like “oh my gosh I'm gonna have the Son of God” and then she was like “I can’t I’m not married and stuff”.

Joseph he was a builder, Mary told Joseph that she was having a baby called Jesus and it was God's Son. He was like “What!?!” Then Joseph saw the angel in a dream. I think Joseph was really scared.

And then they went to Bethlehem on a donkey. Mary was quite hot, she had a baby in her tummy and she would have been really heavy. She said can we stop anywhere with these houses. They had to try and find somewhere for Mary to have the baby. They went around a whole neighbourhood. “There’s no space.” Everyone said no in an angry voice because it was the middle of the night. “No” The last inn keeper said yeah theres a barn type thing around the back.

They had to go to a barn and have their baby. It had sheep, it was like all hay and animal poop and sheep and things. Mary put baby Jesus in one of those troughs. They call the baby Jesus and they loved him. And he has two daddies God and Joseph they both needed to look after the baby.

The angels told the shepherds to follow the star. There was three kings, they followed the star all the way to where Jesus was born. When they get to the stable they give Jesus the presents and then they got some angels as visitors too and then there was a giant star. Everyone was there. And there was a party.
