The story of the birth of Jesus is primarily found in the New Testament of the Bible, particularly in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke. According to the biblical narrative, Jesus was born in Bethlehem to Mary and Joseph. The angel Gabriel had announced to Mary that she would conceive a child by the Holy Spirit, and she gave birth to Jesus in a stable, as there was no room at the inn.

The shepherds in the fields and the Magi (wise men) from the East are often part of the Christmas story as well. The shepherds were said to have received a message from angels about the birth of the Savior, and the Magi followed a star to find the baby Jesus, bringing gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.

Over the centuries, Christmas has evolved into both a religious and a cultural celebration, marked by various traditions such as the decoration of Christmas trees, the exchange of gifts, festive meals, and the singing of Christmas carols. While the religious significance remains central for many, Christmas is widely celebrated by people of diverse backgrounds and beliefs around the world.
