The Pageant


About every two or three years, owing to the organisation, our Church put on a Christmas Pageant. This was like a nativity play but was held in the church it self. The majority of those who attended the church were asked to take part. So it ranged from all ages young and old.

Their were several little angels in white from the Sunday school. Angel Gabriel was played by a handsome young man we all took a shine to. I must say I had always wanted to play Mary but this never happened as I was so tall and not angelic enough. So was delighted when I was asked to be one of the two big angels. Until I discovered I had to stand at the back on a stool in one of the corners holding a long trumpet. I realise now that I was chosen for my height. My partner angel and I were dressed in yellow with large gold wings and I found the standing on the stool on the night in question to be very nerve racking trying to keep my arms straight with the trumpet ( These days of health and safety it would not be allowed). Fortunately the event took place only once after one of the evening services and most of the excitement was getting dressed up. I was assigned to helping the little angels get ready and the whole evening was well attended. Being part of this sticks well into my memory as it was now well over fifty years ago.

I would love to hear all about your pageant: descriptions of the children, their costumes, little mistakes, opening night...was it cold and snowing outside? What town the Church is in...and all 50 years ago. You have some wonderful experiences to share with us. Thanks for the window to peek through. Looking forward to your next one.

Oh, the imagery you could have used. I would love to read more about this. It sound wonderful. Please try to be more elaborate. Nicely done.

The fact this happened so long ago is proof that there are so many things that make such an impression on us as children. It was a sweet trip down memory lane and like the others, you made me want to know more about all the characters!

You brought back so many childhood memories of past Christmas pageants. Thank you!

The story apparently could be a great one, but the errors in the beginning of the story is kind of discouraging, it does not motivate the reader to proceed. Mispelled words, and distinction in words like there and their can be very depleting to a writer's work. Don't be discouraged, as these are common mistakes. Try using spelling check and the grammar features on your computer, as they a very helpful when you're not sure of your spelling, grammar and punctuation capabilities.
