    At Christmastime, we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.

    Mary and Joseph

    Jesus was born in Bethlehem. His mother was named Mary, and Joseph was her husband.

    Mary and Joseph took baby Jesus to the temple in Jerusalem. There, a man named Simeon held baby Jesus. He felt the Holy Ghost tell him that Jesus was the Son of God.

    A woman named Anna also saw baby Jesus and knew He was the Savior. She went to tell other people about Him.

    I think about Jesus at Christmastime. He really lives. He loves me!
