Merry Christmas, everyone! Time to tell you all another Bible story - the birth of Jesus, Mayor-Gia-style.

There once was a lady named Mary:

She was super pregnant:

She had a husband named Joseph. He was not the father.






Around the time Mary was due, they had to travel to Bethlehem for a census.

A short while later…

Joseph knocked on the door.










The innkeeper, out of fear for his life, told them they could “go around back, where the animals are.”




Mary then gave birth among the animals. People try to make it sound all sweet and magical, but it was actually bloody and disgusting and painful, like most childbirths. Mary screamed a lot.

 But afterwards, they were happy.




A few days (or weeks or months, I have no idea) later, three wise man came bearing gifts.





And then they all sat around the baby Jesus and wrote Christmas songs.


Merry Christmas, Everyone!

  5. I'm going to say that it's a camel, based on the neck curve, and camelly colour.

  6. Hope you had a great Christmas, Gia! I really hope it had a lot less gore than your story (which I loved!)
