JOSEPH (male)

Please stop, Mary.. Stop. (He can not look at Mary) I loved you, I mean I love you Mary, so when word got to me, that my wife to be was with child before we came together, I was devastated (He begins to tear) How could my Mary, my heart be unfaithful, I loved you, the pain was so deep, my heart gone. I could not believe it, but there is was clear as day, the truth. (He turns to Mary) You were with child. The people, the people kept coming to me Mary, telling me, calling you names, I hated it, but you were pregnant with child, and we had yet to come together, I did not want to disgrace you, because you still lived in my heart, but I decided we could no longer be..(Mary is emotional but understand, she turns to cry) But then…..But, the most miraculous thing happened, an Angel

INNKEEPER (male or female)

She looks more than tired and worn, she looks as if she is ready to burst, and for this I am sad to report that there is no room at the inn (Mary lets out a cry and bends over in pain) I am sorry, I can not help you……Wait, Wait (Mary and Joseph stop and turn as the innkeeper approaches). It is true I have no room for you, but something inside me will not allow me to turn you away. There is a stable out back, you are welcome to stay there. I can provide you with blankets to keep warm, it is not much but it is all I have to offer.

MARY (female)

Though I am unsure, I serve the Lord. May His will be done.I do not know why I have been chosen. I do not know if I am strong enough for such a task. I do not feel worthy. What will Joseph think, will I loose the man I am to wed. Does it even matter, I am scared, I feel alone, But I will follow my lord, I will open my heart to whatever his will is in my life. I turn to him for comfort now (Mary falls to her knees to pray ) Dear God I feel alone, I feel scared…

CHRISTMAS (male or female)

My name is Christmas and I am here to tell you how I came to be. I am so excited to bring you on this journey with me. You will see the beauty of the nativity.Over 2000 years ago, God sent the angel, an angel called Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, to a virgin named Mary who was pledged to be married to a carpenter named Joseph.
