What's your favourite nativity memory?

Did you do a nativity as a child? If so, what's your favourite memory?

Whether you bagged the coveted role of Mary or Joseph, or were proud to be first lobster (YouTube), we want to hear about it!

One of my nativity memories is being the narrator one year, and having to learn a little song on handheld bells with the other narrator. It took us ages, but we smashed it on the night.

    I was a narrator every year for some reason so I managed to get out of singing :)

    Son 30 years ago played Joseph, he decided it wasn't the Baby Jesus in the crib but "Kraft cheeses" much to the amusement of all watching.

    I couldn’t speak when I was a child so I couldn’t ask to be in the nativity play as others did. But, if I’d been able to I would’ve made a good angel I’ll bet.

    Happy new year 🥳

    I remember having various roles over the years in the Nativity, but one year I was one of the kings and loved decorating my crown with lots of jewels and glitter :) I had so much fun!

    Mine has always been the singing! 

    Even if I can't sing properly  :#

    I particularly remember singing away in a manger!
