Baby Jesus

Relationship: Child of im/migrant

When I was young my aunt gave me a baby Jesus statue. My aunt was kind enough and she it was mine but since I was too young to take care of it my parent took it. My family and I believe in Jesus so that makes us Christians. Christmas my family go to church and when pray for Jesus to protect us. My family and I are very thankful for my aunt to give us that statue. My family and I treat the statue with respect because it cool easily break, in other word the status comes in many shapes and sizes,mine is about the size of a babe. There many traditions where you could dress him up, such as in Hail Marry’s birthday, this is very important to the Latin culture because it show how much we believe in him and how much we want him to protect us.
