Perfect Christmas Nativity Chaos

It's Christmas didn't you know it's been Christmas since August and Easter is only but round the corner. And you know what I swear blind that Cream eggs have shrunk.

Anyway back to Christmas and nativities are in full swing , baby Jesus has been gifted a Dalek and is sporting  a new Arsensal kit.

The wiseman are playing tag , the inn keeper shouts "no room at the inn , I'm not a charity case you know '

Angel Gabriel is refusing to come out of the toilet cubicle as she wanted to be Mary. The festive elf is having a melt down on Santas sleigh, being a carpenter in the recession is looking good for Joseph.

Mary is left wondering about tax credits and poor Joseph is in bits at the prospect of working till 68.

And low the shepherds are singing 'Gangnam Style ' 

Welcome to the frantic world of the nativity a parents pride , joy and burden for many a year. 

But you know what that chaos is my perfect Christmas either through my involment through my sons nativity of past years or that of school now.

You see how ever much there is chaos , the odd child crying, the refusal at first to come on , one of the wiseman chucking his gift at baby Jesus shouting" Noooo Nooooo"

The teachers wishing the mulled wine had actual wine in it .

No matter what the obstacle this is my perfect Christmas chaos followed by a beautiful silence after events. 

Now how to get that pen moustache off Mary ?

”Merry Christmas! This post is my entry into the Tots100/Argos 12 Days of Christmas competition.


  1. Hehe it's not Christmas without a chaotic nativity play. :)

  2. hahahahahaha that is all so bloody true! Love it!

  3. you have summed it up nicely, and the parents never notice the bits that dont go quite right cos they are too busy watching their own wee cutie. I know Fifi was not happy the other week cos she did not get picked for the leading role but she will still go out and give her all at the role she has got.

  4. I do adore a good nativity - and frankly they're all brilliant, however 'to plan' they go :D

  5. Mulled wine without wine in it is a TRAVESTY. ;) made me giggle! xx

  6. Haha our nativity is this week - that is all very funny - especially the gangman style.

  7. I felt for my son's nursery teacher today as she tried her very best to get the class to 'sing up' as she has dressed as a Christmas tree with baubles swinging this way and that......

  8. Fantastic post Claire i love it x

    thanks for lining up with #MagicMoments x

  9. I do love a nativity play - my 7 year old has actually got a line to say this year! She'll need to draw on her acting skills though as she's an angel!!
