We attended a pre-school Christmas program last night, and those 2, 3, 4, and 5 year olds were criminally adorable.... The audience had been warned that some of the "performers" might get stage fright and run to sit with parents in the pews, but that was OK, so we were all cool with that, though it didn't actually happen that way...
The youngster portraying the star of Bethlehem totally balked, but he managed to sling the gold lame' star shape around effectively....there were a few halos that got knocked askew from the angels' heads, and one child managed to spend part of the time visible only as a pair of legs clad in white tights and black Mary Janes (she was apparently lying on her back with her feet straight up in the air)
One wise man prematurely proclaimed with all the gusto of a five year old, "I BROUGHT GOOOLD!", but when the narrator continued and caught up the story, he realized that he had jumped the gun the first time, and, then, at the ACTUAL right time, loudly reiterated, "I BROUGHT GOOOOLD!", this time slightly spoiling the effect by some animated waving to his family on the third row....I loved it!
But my favorite was the angel shouting to the shepherds who were sitting with their sheep...
"Don't be AFWAID! Don't be AFWAID!"
Like I said, adorable! The best 20 minute program I've ever seen! And the real reason for the season! What's not to love!!??!?!?
