It’s that time of year when all the kids are putting on their Nativity plays so it has made me reminisce…
Nativity plays these days seem like a million miles from what I can remember. I’ve heard of ones having characters such as an Elvis, The Kardashians and even a rock which has its own theme tune – “We Will Rock You” by Queen.
I’m also looking forward to watching “Nativity 3 – Dude, Where’s My Donkey?” because I’ve watched the previous two and think they are fab!
I thought that in this day and age of “political correctness gone bonkers” having this religious event might offend other religions blah blah blah but I’m glad it’s still a tradition.
I can only remember being involved in one Nativity at school.
Was I Joseph? No.
Was one of the shepherds? No.
I wasn’t even a rock!
I was in the percussion group. This might sound like a good part, no pressure and you get to play a musical instrument, right?
My instrument can only be described as a “bad boy’s tambourine”…
I just had to tap it every so often while I had to watch everyone else with actual tambourines – complete with bells – shake them like a mother f*****.
I think I enjoyed it at the time but looking back I feel quite cheated.
What about you?
Do you have any interesting Nativity stories from your childhood?
