i sympathise ds2 was the donkey last year !!!!!!! grin

Last year DS was a donkey which in fairness is pretty acurate.

However, DD was a bloody servant/slave, I nearly wrote a letter asking is it because she is black! grin grin

Pudding is better than one of a crowd of angels. Especially if you are allowed to paint Aunt Sally type rosy cheeks.

I was Joseph one year, thanks to an ill advised haircut that made me look like a mini Justin Beiber/tosser and I hate my mum for letting me do it

But a pudding gives you a chance to make her the most spectacular little pudding ever! Do you have to make the costume? If you do crack out the sequins and go wild. If not stealborrow the costume for 'adjustments' and go mad!

can I help

DS has been a tree and a squirrell in the past... My squirrell costume had to be seen to be believed!
DD wants to be a lamb this year. Not a sheep, but specifically a lamb..

I'm sure that she will be the best pudding there ever was grin.

My DD1 was a sheep last year, like the rest of reception. I couldn't even see her because I ended up at the back but according to DH (could see a little because he's tall) she just sat picking her nose the whole time! blush

You should be proud, last year my little one was a rock!

Everyone will think angels..whatever. But they'll def remember the Christmas Puddingwink.

Surely a one-off Christmas pudding (which is a food of the gods) is better than one of many angels grin.
DS3 is desperate to be the donkey, I hope that he will not be disappointed.

My brother was once a pea in a Christmas play! I was once cast as Queen of Cheeseland (possibly type-casting as I am a big fan of cheese) grin

YANBU.....their casting skills are notoriously crap. Last year my perfect and stunning DD2 was cast as a SHEPARD!!! Don't they SEE that she WAS MARY! She is the perfect Mary!

dd1 was cast as a rat.

she was a rat with style.

i was a gollywog(1970s childhood) and burned the photos!

be grateful she is a pudding

I remember being cast as a Shepherd for the Brownies' Nativity when I was about 8. All the blonde girls were angels and all the brunetts were Shepherds.

I was so pissed off that I was "sick" that day!

Ds was cloud number 3 in his first one. Dd1 was an american indian. Can't help but wonder what awaits dd2 this year.

This thread reminds me of Love Actually where Emma Thompson's DD proudly announces that she is going to be the 2nd Lobster in her Nativity.

"You mean that there was more than one lobster at the birth of baby Jesus?"

amy175 Tue 06-Nov-12 10:35:43

anyone else thinking of the lobster in Love Actually?

Viviennemary Tue 06-Nov-12 10:36:11

I had to smile when I read this. DD was a lamb and I remember DH being indignant that she hadn't got a better part!!

My DD1 was a cabbage a few years ago in her school harvest play. The following year she was a carrot and finally she was a mouse. So she progressed nicely up the food chain!
