"9An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10But the angel said to them, 'Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. 11Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. 12This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.'
13Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, 14'Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests.'"
- Luke 2:9-14
"22All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: 23'The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel'—which means, 'God with us.'"
-Matthew 1:22-23 (Prophecy reference: Isaiah 7:14)
I hope you have a wonderful Christmas celebrating family, friends, the year that has passed, and the birth of a very special baby in Bethlehem - God's fulfillment of his promise to mankind!
Merry Christmas!
