Recall that at this time over 2030 years ago a simple carpenter and his pregnant wife are nearing the end of their journey from Nazareth to Bethlehem, a distance of about 80 miles, for the census as mandated by Herod. Soon they will begin to look for a place to stay. The only place they will be to settle down is a smelly stable where all of the other travelers keep their beasts of burden… Hardly the birthplace for a king, but God presents himself in small, humble ways.
