Synopsis

And she brought forth her firstborn son,
and wrapped him in swaddling clothes,
and laid him in a manger,
because there was no room for them in the inn.

When all the world is to be taxed, a carpenter named Joseph takes his pregnant wife, Mary, to a place called Bethlehem to deliver a miracle to the world. This is the story of the birth of Jesus Christ, taken directly from the Gospel according to St. Luke in the King James Bible.

These simple yet profound words tell a powerful story of life, love, and hope, while James Bernardin's stunning paintings masterfully transport us to this magical time and place. The Christmas Story is the perfect way to share one of the most famous stories of all time with your family.
