There was nothing the innkeeper liked more than a good night's sleep.
But one night there was a knock at the door.
"No room," said the innkeeper.
"But we're tired and have traveled through night and day."
"There's only the stable around the back. Here's two blankets. Sign the register."
So they signed it: "Mary and Joseph."
Then he shut the door, climbed the stairs, got into bed, and went to sleep.
But then, later, there was another knock at the door.
