The Legend Of The Robin's Red Breast

A little brown bird shared Bethlehem's stable with the holy family. One night as the family slept the little bird noticed their fire was going out and she flew from the rafters and fanned the fire with her wings throughout the night in order to keep the baby Jesus warm... In the morning she was rewarded with a bright red breast as a symbol of love for the newborn King.......
