Thanks to COVID-19, the worst party crasher of all time, we don’t have many Christmas musicals or Christmas pageants. To help folks get by, I wanted to share some hilarious Christmas Pageant moments to help us get through 2020 until—hopefully!—we can get them back next Christmas. Until then, may these bring you just a little extra Christmas cheer.
1. A sheep kidnaps baby Jesus.
You can’t just dress like a sheep. You have to be the sheep. Otherwise, you may wish you were Mary instead and decide to steal baby Jesus out of the manger. Credit to Mary for protecting her kid.
2. Not such a silent night, after all.
The Bible does say to make a joyful noise unto the Lord. This child took it to heart. My favorite part is knowing the parent’s faces are turning blood red while their siblings laugh about 10 pews away.
3. Grandma got run over by a….camel!
A friend of mine insists on one rule for all church events: no live animals! You can see why here. What starts as a journey to Bethlehem ends with a matron of the church being squashed by a camel! Even better, this happened at Jimmy Scroggins’s church.
4. “Someone please turn Jesus back around!”
In 2011, a small church in Florida decided to put on Handel’s “Messiah”, to show Christ to the community. They showed more than they intended.
5. “Where are my background singers?”
Pattie LaBell doesn’t have a lot of bad moments, but this one is one for the ages. Technically not a church Christmas event, but I had to include it.

The Worst ‘O Holy Night’ Ever.
