Good evening, ladies and truckers.

The children have worked very hard this term to bring you this, so without further ado, here is the Mumsnet Nativity 2006.


This is the story of Mary, Joseph and the birth of Baby Jesus. Along the way we shall meet shepherds, angels, wise men, a crotchety innkeeper and all manner of animals.

Our story starts with Mary having a very special visitor...

This nativity should have got to the baby bit by now. And who keeps waving that bloody star around?

PercussionSection Mon 18-Dec-06 22:31:16


No particular reason, but things seemed to be drying up so I thought I'd get my triangle out.
