About  the Nativity and Christmas  

In 1223 St. Francis  of Assisi lamented that  Christmas had become materialistic !  Imagine that 800 years ago.  (And Americans thought we invented materialism)  He created a representation of what the birth of Christ was like, to help people understand that solemn event:  God the son, came to earth as a new born baby.  

The origin of our modern day Christmas comes from the Christ Mass -- the church service celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ.   It's very common to celebrate "Christmas" without even knowing about the miraculous events surrounding the Birth and why we celebrate it 2000 years later.    Learn more about the Christmas Story.
