A very bright star shone brightly over the manger and they were all covered in its light.
Outside was dark but the night sky was lit by lots of stars and some local shepherds were looking after their sheep in the nearby hills.
A bright light appeared in the sky and they were very afraid.
It was an Angel sent by God and the Angel told them not
to be afraid because he had some good news.
He said that the Son of God had been born and they would find him in Bethlehem.
The Shepherds went to see the baby.
They found him in a stable and they were filled with great joy at seeing him lying in the manger.
They told Joseph and Mary how the Angel had appeared in the sky and told them that Jesus was to be the Saviour of the world.
