Legend Of The Christmas Star: Christmas Legend
The Story Of Star Of Bethlehem
A new star was seen in the sky, along with other stars, one fine night and this star was so radiant that its bright rays spread light as bright as day on the gray hills of Bethlehem. The shepherds, who were resting after a hectic day, saw this strange, bright star and were frightened because of the unusual shine. Immediately, to their surprise, an angel came to them and said: “Do not be afraid; the star has come to bring you good tidings of great joy, and to show you the place where a little baby is born,–a little babe whose name is Jesus, and who will give peace and joy to the whole world.” The angel disappeared after saying this and the shepherds decided to go and see the child. They left their flock of sheep resting on the hillside and took their crook.
The shepherds started towards Bethlehem, following the bright star and reached the stable where Jesus Christ was born. They bowed the baby who was cradled in a manger. It was the same star that appeared before the three wise men who noticed the star moving. They understood that it was some omen and began to follow it. These wise men too, reached Bethlehem and bowed down before the baby and presented him with the various gifts that they had got with them. The star, which casted the bright light and led the shepherds and wise men to Bethlehem, then went back to heaven.
The Christmas star is not just a colorful decor; it signifies peace and high hopes. It gives you the ray of hope that the Son of God will help you confront and conquer every difficult situation you come across. It shows that every good thing comes from within and that there is a silver lining in every dark cloud.
