CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
They returned into Galilee - But not immediately: for the coming of the wise men, and the retreat of Joseph with his family into Egypt, happened between this period of time, and his going to Nazareth in Galilee. - Bp.

It should be the joy that comes from giving joy to others. The central fact of Christmas is …
