Legend of the Robin
The night that Christ was born a little brown bird shared the stable with the Holy Family. During the night, Joseph built a fire to keep the family warm, but as they slept, the fire burned out. The bird flew down from its nest and fanned embers with its wings, drawing so close to the fire that the heat turned the bird's feathers red. The breast of the robin has been red ever since to remind us of its love and compassion for the baby Jesus.
