The Christmas Eve play this year went off perfectly. Everything we practiced came together despite the flu hitting some of my actors. I had to move a girl shepherd to be a king and one of my angels also had the flu. However, I had a whole choir of angels so I didn’t need to add another.
The shepherds all made it in time, even the tiniest 4 year old with his robe dragging and coming up last came to adore the Baby Jesus.
But then all the children in the church were invited to bring their gift of a “star” to the Baby Jesus in Bethlehem and good old St. Joseph said “Thank You” to each and every one.
