“Silent Night, Indeed”

#1- “Who are these people?”

#2- “I don’t really know, but they are definitely not one of us.”

#1- “They are funny looking, aren’t they?”

#3- “Indeed.”

# 1- “How are we suppose to all fit in such a small place?”

#2- “Just make room; it’s a cold night.”

#3- “Indeed.”

#4- “That’s right! Why… I remember when I first came here; if it weren’t for your kindness I could have caught may death of cold.”

#3- “Indeed, indeed.”

#1- “The little one is quite a handful, isn’t he.”

#2- “I should say so, but so was my little lamb.”

#1- “Your little lamb is not so little now, is he!”

#2- “Hold your tongue or they may have it for dinner.”

#1- “Very funny.”

#3- “Indeed.”

#4- “I don’t mind sharing my food, but… sleeping in it?”

#3- “Indeed, indeed.”

#1- “Could someone turn off that insanely bright light, please?”

#2- “Hardly… it is a star, you ninny.”

#3- “Indeed! I thought we agreed their would be no name calling?”

#2- “Easy for you to say, you old goat!”

#1- “What is an Immanuel, anyway.”

#2- “Immanuel?”

#1- “That’s what they keep calling him.”

#2- “It’s going to be a long, long night… and tomorrow a day to remember, I’m sure of that!”

#3- “Indeed… a wonderful day to remember, indeed.”

All the animals finely quieted as they bedded down. It became a most silent night as Mary and Joseph watched Jesus close His eyes His first eve in the manger.

I LOVE your ending clarification of characters. How clever and very creative! And so funny, now in retrospect.

Ok, so I peeked at the end of the story before finishing from the beginning. It helped me understand who was doing the talking and put them in perspective.
Very funny, indeed. I loved it.

Cute. It helped knowing who the cast of characters were. This made me chuckle. Very creative.
