Luke 2:1-7

And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed. (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:) To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

When Jesus was born there was no fancy party or royal parade. It was just a simple birth.  This follows God’s plan. If there was a large party, then people would have worshiped him because of they were told to, not because they believed him. The same can be true today. We do not need a large show to convert people to Christ, all we need is the truth and they will come. The rest is just noise that can get in the way.
