The Christmas story is a story of outsiders. It's not a perfect "made for tv" movie script. This year as you consider the Christmas story learn about the outsiders in the story because that version of the story makes it more resemble our story.
Sometimes it feels like the Christmas story is too good to be true. Take a second look at the actual story and see that there are many elements we would change to make the story say what we have wanted. This year, read it as true...not too good to be true.
