It's not just Mary and Joseph who found it difficult to find a bed at Christmas.
Lots of people travel and visit at Christmas time and extended families arriving home are larger than when they last left.
This puts a lot of pressure on hosts trying to fit everyone in. The result is that one family member ends up with the short straw; they might end up squashed into the spare room behind some storage boxes or if they are not so lucky couch the sitting room beside the dog.
One twitter user Rhodri Marsden (@rhodri ) has been asking people to share photos of where they sleep at Christmas and some of them are hilarious.
