Who did you play in the school nativity?

Many infants and juniors around the UK will be rehearsing for their school's nativity. An annual tradition in many Christian-leaning primary schools, which character did you play?

Did your school do a non-conventional Christmas show?
In which case, let us know in the replies...

Suggesting you were better with your lines than your dear husband :pierre:
I don't even remember but I think I was a narrator or some non-acting role :colondollar: too much stage fright!
I was King Herod :colone:
Usually the donkey or a manger cow.
Once ended up as the camel carrying the gifts from the 3 kings.
I feel like I relive this experience in this thread every year, but I played...a horse. My one line was 'neigh' :rofl:

In Reception, I was the innkeeper's wife but I was so terrible at it (plus they thought I had a nice speaking voice/read well) that all the subsequent years I was narrator :rofl:

Anyone else reminded of this glorious moment in Love Actually? :rofl:
