Modern Christmas

God via text:

Hey Gabriel. I need you to do something for me.

Gabriel via text:

Yeah, what do You need?

God via text:

Go tell Mary she's to give birth to my Son.

Gabriel via text:

Okay. Consider it done.

--------------------------------------------

Gabriel appears on Mary's computer screen. Mary gasps.

Gabriel:

Mary, do not be afraid for I come to you in peace. You are the chosen one. You are to give birth to a child. His name shall be called Emmanuel, Jesus. He is God's Son.

Mary: 

Hunh? But how can this be? I've never even been with a man. I am engaged, but we have never known each other intimately. 

Gabriel:

Just trust.

--------------------------------------------

Mary picks up the phone:

Joseph? Honey, I need to tell you something.

Joseph: 

What's up?

Mary:

We're going to have a child. He's God's Son. But we're going to raise Him together.

Joseph: 

Um.... Mary...?

Mary hangs up.

---------------------------------------------

Joseph texts his friend:

You got a minute?

Friend:

Yeah, what's up?

Joseph:

Just a minute.

Joseph via FaceTime:

Mary just told me we're expecting. It's God's Son. I don't know whether to go through the wedding now or not?

Friend:

Go for it man. You should feel honored man.

----------------------------------------------

Joseph:

Hey Mary, we have to go to Bethlehem for the census. But Bethlehem Travel's website says there might not be any rooms available.

Mary:

That's okay. I'm sure we'll find something.

---------------------------------------------

Joseph and Mary at the third inn:

Sir, surely you have something? Mary's about to pop. We cannot continue any further.

Innkeeper:

Well, there is the stable.

Joseph:

We'll take it!

---------------------------------------------

The wise men receive the text alert on their phones:

The newborn king of kings has arrived! His name is Jesus.

The wise men look at each other. All three: 

He's cute!!!

1: Let's go!
2: Yeah!
3: Siri?
Siri: Yes?
3: Set route for Bethlehem. Stable. Under the star.
Siri: Here you go.
