Candy canes were sometimes handed out during
church services to keep the children quiet. When
looked at with the crook on top, it looks like a
shepherd's staff because Jesus is the shepherd of man.
If you turn it upside down, it becomes the letter J
symbolizing the first letter in Jesus' name.

The Nativity Story (http://www.topmarks.co.uk/Search.aspx)
About two thousand years ago, in the town of Nazareth, there lived a young woman named Mary. She
was engaged to be married to Joseph, a carpenter. One day an angel appeared before her and told her she
had been chosen to have a special baby. The baby would be God's son and she must call him Jesus.
Soon after the angel's visit, Mary and Joseph were married. Mary was due to have her baby when they
were told they had to go on a long journey to Bethlehem, which was where Joseph came from. This was
because they had to pay a special tax.
At last Mary and Joseph arrived in Bethlehem. It was crowded with other people who needed to pay their
taxes. Mary was very tired and needed a place to stay. At each inn, the story was the same. There was no
room for them. Eventually, one kind innkeeper said he had a stable where he kept his animals. They were
welcome to stay there.
And so it was that a few hours later, Mary gave birth to her son in that stable. She wrapped Jesus in strips
of cloth and laid Him in a manger full of hay.
At the same time, on a hillside overlooking Bethlehem, some shepherds were watching over their sheep.
A bright light appeared in the sky. They were very afraid. It was an angel sent by God. The angel told
them not to be afraid, because he had some good news. He said the Son of God had been born and they
would find Him in Bethlehem.
The shepherds wanted to go and see the baby. When they arrived at the stable, they were filled with joy at
seeing Jesus lying in the manger. They knelt down and worshipped Him. They told Mary and Joseph how
the angel had appeared in the sky and told them that Jesus was to be the Saviour of the world.
Far away in the East, Wise Men saw a new star shining high in the sky. These men studied the stars and
they knew this was a very special star. They studied their scrolls where it said that whenever a bright new
star appeared it meant that a great ruler had been born.
The Wise Men decided to find this new ruler. They went to Jerusalem to see King Herod, as they thought
the baby would be in the palace. They asked to see the child that would be King of the Jews. The king
was troubled. He thought this new king may take away his throne. He told them to return when they had
found the baby so that he could worship the child himself.
The Wise Men set off to find the baby. They were guided by the star to the stable in Bethlehem. Here they
knelt down and worshipped Jesus. They gave him gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. That night, the
men had the same dream where an angel warned them that King Herod wanted to kill Jesus and told them
not to go back to his palace.
The Wise Men went back to their own country without calling to see Herod. Soon after Joseph had a
dream where an angel told him to take Mary and Jesus to Egypt as King Herod had ordered that Jesus be
killed. They left Bethlehem right away. When the wise men did not return, Herod ordered that baby boys
in Bethlehem be killed. They did not find Jesus as he was safe.
