Jonathan: Is it really over?
Mom: Well, that the end of the Christmas story but no, it's not the end of the whole story.
Dad: The baby grew up and performed many miracles, walking on water, feeding of the five thousand. Then, he died for all of our sins, so that one day we can go to heaven and dwell with him.
Miriam: I can't believe I ever got bored of the Christmas story. It's so wonderful, especially when you realize that it's there's more then a baby born in a manger.
Mom: When I was younger my mother used to tell me a little rhyme that goes like this: He's more then a baby, born in a manger bed. More then a boy to me. More then a man who walked this earth long ago. He's my savior, he died for me.
