The Daily Mail is concerned about the decline in traditional Christmas nativity plays: '‘modern’ roles being introduced in schools include aliens, recycling bins, punk fairies, Elvis, footballers, a lobster, a napkin, carrots, sprouts, a pumpkin and a drunken spaceman.'

Did you have any unusual characters in yours?

The article refers to a poll which polled just over 2000 members on netmums. Is that really representative or not? A lot of parents don't pay any attention to parenting sites/forums.

Remember this is the Daily Mail, so this could easily be exaggerated.

Oh yeah, I wouldn't take the Daily Mail seriously for a second. I just thought it was a fun talking point!

At my primary we once done a xmas play which involved us playing different nationalities. I don't remember the storyline at all but I do remember my group was American and we had to line dance. During the generic nativity plays, I just stood in the background as a donkey or a sheep.

I can only speak from my experience, but my school always had the traditional nativity play and I haven't heard anyone in my village say otherwise, so I don't think it's changed since I left. The only thing "a bit different" is that years 5 and 6 did a different play in the summer instead of a nativity play, which you were allowed to sit out of.

Christmas just wouldn't be Christmas without people who most likely don't go to church moaning about "our Christian culture being eroded".

Don\'t know about the nativity so this is on a slight tangent but for our summer play a cheap, sexed-down knock-off of Grease, I played the Tetley Tea Man recounting the Battle of Hastings 0_0

Yeh we had religious icons from every religion except Christianity- apparently it was to indicate that the skl is multi-cultural and if we focused on Christianity it might of come across as racist or offensive- political correctness at its best

It was the most ridiculous thing ever! It was about two families of rapping bears in Madagascar arguing about land and then one side had a baby and they decided to build a bridge so they could both share the land :2in1:
