How well do you know the story of Jesus’ birth? Your gut reaction may be: ‘All too well’. So well in fact, that you may slightly dread Christmas rolling around each year. As children’s leaders we are required – year in, year out – to ‘do’ the nativity, whether it be in the form of a performance, a carol service or some craft activity involving wire coat hangers. The challenge to come up with something new and original is an almost overwhelming and seemingly impossible task (see Christmas at Ho Ho Home for ideas).
