The Christmas Story

When those anonymous authors of the gospels created their various versions of what we now know as the Christmas story, do you think they assumed that nobody would ever check the historicity of their tales and so they just made shit up (or, if you want to be more generous, embellished liberally) or would you say it’s more likely that they didn’t intend the stories to be taken as being literally true but, rather, were creating fables intended to convey a deeper meaning?

It’s got to be one or the other, y’know, because the events described simply did not happen as they are portrayed in those books.
