The True Meaning of Christmas

Chester Whigget
And now, through the magic of popsicle stick puppetry, I present … The Upside Down Kingdom! “In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world.”

Chuck Waggin
Wait – this sounds kinda familiar.

Brother Louie
It sure does. Let’s see where he’s goin’ with it.

Ian
Um – who is Caesar, and what’s a “census”?

Chester Whigget
Caesar – he was the king of everything. A real big shot.

Brother Louie
And a census is when you count everybody to see how many people ya got!

Chester Whigget
That’s a-right. “Everyone went to their own town to register. So Joseph – that’s this guy – went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David.”

Ian
You mean KING David? Israel’s best king EVER?

Chester Whigget
Yah, that’s the one.

Ian
Is King David gonna turn upside down?

Chester Whigget
I’m not done yet! “Joseph went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child.” This is Mary. She’s got a big tummy, cuz she’s gonna have a baby! Anyway … “While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son.” Here he is! Isn’t he cute? Ahem. “She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.

Ian
They put him in a WHAT?

Clive
A manger. It’s a feeding trough for animals!

Ian
Why would they put him in a feeding trough?

Clive
Because he was born in a BARN!

Chuck Waggin
My grandaddy was born in a barn.

Brother Louie
You don’t say?

Chuck Waggin
First thing he saw was a horse. Thought it was his mother until he was five years old.
