summarize article "As churches and families around the world prepare to dust off their Nativity figures for the festive season, Pope Benedict writes in a new book on Christ that contrary to popular belief, Jesus' birth was not presided over by oxen, asses, camels or indeed any other beasts, the Telegraph reported. The inclusion of domestic animals in the Nativity scene may have been inspired by pre-Christian traditions, for instance in the Book of Habakkuk, a part of the Hebrew Bible which was probably written by an early prophet in the seventh century BC, Benedict wrote."
