Description

You could enjoy yourselves, dressing up to share the news of Jesus. Here are a few ideas:

A live nativity complete with donkey brings the old story to people's attention. Children love to pet, gather round and take pictures of a donkey.

Nearly 20 years ago I did my first live nativity through the streets of Chester complete with Mary riding a donkey. It was a powerful roving nativity and people literally stopped in their tracks. Get a group of mates to dress as Kings who then frantically search for a star around a busy town centre. This creates a scene, and it leaves questions for people; have they have seen the ‘star!’ Last year to publicise the gifts we were giving away we dressed one of the team as a star. He wasn’t too happy about it, but it certainly got people’s attention.

Rationale

There really is no time of year like Christmas, when you can dress up like an idiot and get away with it. The costumes help create points of conversation, and add to the Christmas celebrations.

Outcome

Conversations about Jesus' birth.
