Baby Jesus in A Manger

Jesus in manger.
Description of animation: A manger, or trough, is a feeder that is made of carved stone, wood, or metal construction and is used to hold food for animals (as in a stable). Mangers are mostly used in livestock raising. They are also used to feed wild animals, e.g., in nature reserves. The word comes from the French manger (meaning "to eat"), from Latin manducare (meaning "to chew"). This animation shows the baby Jesus wrapped in white swaddling and lying in a manger.

Did You Know? A manger is also a Christian symbol, associated with nativity scenes where Mary, forced by necessity to stay in a stable instead of an inn, used a manger as a makeshift bed for the baby Jesus. (Greek: φατνη phatnē; Luke 2:7).
A manger rocks back and forth, like a cradle,
 with baby Jesus in it. A star shines down.

A simple manger scene wit star and baby.

Mary prays to her new born child, Jesus.
The Way The Baby Came
by Whitcomb Riley

O This is the way the baby came:
Out of the night as comes the dawn;
Out of the embers as the flame;
The apple-bough that blooms the same
As in glad summers dead and gone--
With a grace and beauty none could name--
O this is the way the baby came!
