Christmas Rhyming Riddles

The inn was full in this small town,

So in a manger they laid Him down.

They’d come to this City of David to pay

Their taxes, Herod’s law to obey.

What city was this? ____________________

In Swaddling clothes, asleep, He lay

On that first, wondrous Christmas day.

His mother, Mary, sat nearby,

Singing Him a lullaby.

Who was He? ___________________________

While they watched o’er their flocks one night,

An angel came in heavenly light

And gave them “tidings of great joy”—

They left in haste to see the Boy.

Who were they? ________________________

They traveled from the east afar,

Following a bright, bright star;

Many precious gifts they brought

To give the newborn King they sought.

Who were they? ________________________
