The Annunciation, also referred to as the Annunciation to the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Annunciation of Our Lady, is the Christian celebration of the announcement by the angel Gabriel to the Virgin Mary that she would conceive and become the mother of Jesus, Son of God, marking his Incarnation. Gabriel told her to name her son Jesus, meaning "savior". Many Christians observe this event with the Feast of the Annunciation on March 25th, nine full months before Christmas.
