Jesus and Mary were waiting too!
While they waited, they had to go far from home. They had no where to rest, so they stayed in a stable while they waited for Jesus to be born.
When Jesus was born, they put him in a MANGER to sleep. A Manger is a long box that animals eat from.
You can make a manger for Jesus while you wait too! Each day you do something nice for someone, you can put straw (or yellow pieces of paper) in the manger to make it soft for the baby Jesus
