When there are 20+ people who need parts in the nativity performance, you sometimes have to just go with things. Like a lion and a bear/cow who showed up with the shepherds to worship baby Jesus. Or maybe adding a chief priest and scribe to counsel with Herod after the wise men/women came to call. Or including a “multitude” of the heavenly hosts with the heralding angel.
And with so many babies . . . well, one of the lambs had to step into the role of baby Jesus when the lead got a little cranky.
But rest assured, good times were had by all. It was a performance for the ages for sure.
