Eventually, they had to stay in a cowshed. That night the Blessed Virgin Mary gave birth to a baby Jesus. On this auspicious day, three wise men saw a comet shining in the sky and came to the place where the babies were born in Bethlehem and realized that a great birth had taken place which would do a great service to the world. That was the wonderful event that led to Christmas.
