Never work with children or animals…

The Fiddlers & Dodgers were giving a ribald performance of carols in the foyer, Snodding’s mulled wine was flowing freely, and Cook Cakes’ mince pies were selling like the hot cakes they were. The Christmas Market at Snodding Hall was going superbly well.  Except that Noah Wan found the Secret Santa.

The Little Sniffy CofE Primary School’s nativity play by contrast, was a complete disaster:  two of the angels hadn’t turned up, and the one who did forgot her lines; Mary and Joseph were so busy snogging under the kissing boughs that they missed their entry;  the little lamb that Alistair Crookes had loaned a shepherd was up-staging the infant King;  and the magi were still arguing over the gifts they were going to give the baby Jesus, with Caspar, Melchior and Balthasar trading blows over who was going to present the Wii.  In fact, the only person who gave a staggering performance, was Herod: he’d been on the mulled wine.
