when the Son of God was born of the Blessed Virgin Mary and dwelt among us, becoming like us in all things except sin. Christmas is the story of God’s humility, of Christ’s descent among us, so that on Easter day we could ascent with him to his heavenly kingdom.
Several other feasts, during the Christmas season relate to the celebration of Christ’s birth. These are the Holy Family, Mary Mother of God, Epiphany, and Baptism of the Lord.
