Narrator? Mary? Angel? Barn yard animal?

I was a member of the crowd ... which is pretty much where I've stayed ever since!

Not being chosen as Mary in the school nativity play fucks you up for life.

Angel, always a blinking angel...Just standing at the back trying to keep the silly coathanger halo on my head.

I was a narrator once I was old enough not to be a cow any more (ie could read well enough!)

I was Mary, when I was 6. Came home and told my mum all about it, but told her I was a bit disappointed that it was the same story they did last year!

Not nativity but I was a beach ball - humm amazing I haven't had an eating disorder in later life!

No-way I would let my dds be a beach ball - thanks mum! Everyone else was dols, teddy bears, soldiers etc...

Ok I was no doubt a fat child

Angel twice, fainted twice.

Narrator. I was always the narrator in school plays, apart from in Ernie's incredible illucinations where i was 'lady in the library.'

I was Mary's friend who spoke to her at the well when she was getting water

Hulababy Mon 23-Jul-07 10:39:02

I was a very shy and demure Mary when I was about 6.

My best friend and I were a narrator double act for years and years - early readers, articulate, bossy etc. Both went into science and are now deep in academia (though she has published twice as much as me). Think they must have relented in our final year as she got to be Mary, and I was Gabriel with four-foot silver wings. Result!

only remember one nativity. Shepherd. Liked the tea towel, like long flowing hair

narrator, narrator, narrator
on one occasion I got to be a Wise Man (Caspar iirc)
who was also the narrator

MrsJohnCusack Mon 23-Jul-07 10:44:59

a sheep I believe

One of the verse-speakers who sat at the side. Never ever had a costume

OrmIrian Mon 23-Jul-07 10:49:06

Sheep, angel, christmas tree, narrator.

OrmIrian Mon 23-Jul-07 10:49:24

Not all at the same time.

A king...I was taller than all the boys. My best friend was Mary and my sister was always an angel. It has scarred me for life and even thinking about it now brings a tear to my eye!

An Angel...
