The Roman Emperor, Caesar Augustus, decreed that everyone in the empire should be registered, which led Mary and Joseph to travel from Nazareth to Bethlehem. While there, Mary gave birth to Jesus in a manger since there was no room for them in the inn. Angels appeared to shepherds in the fields, announcing the birth of a savior.
