Though Friday we celebrated Christmas, Dec. 25 is not actually the day Jesus was born. Regardless, Jesus was born quite a while ago, which Roy Rivenburg has a little fun with in this article at Not the Los Angeles Times:

He huffed and He puffed, but Jesus couldn’t blow out all 2,012 candles on this year’s birthday cake, according to reports from Heaven.

“I guess it was inevitable,” one angel said. “Jesus is both fully human and fully divine, and the human side is slowing down with age.”

Several archangels said they hoped the incident would spur Heaven to scale back on its annual Nativity party, a frequent source of consternation for residents of Paradise.

“Have you ever tried throwing a surprise party for an ominiscient being?” one saint said. Others grumbled about the difficulty of shopping for Jesus. “What are you supposed to get a guy who created the universe? A new necktie?”
