You can just see conversations like this happening up and down the country. Mothers competing over who's child is the biggest star in the nativity. I must point out that I am not of this school of thought. I think all the kids in the gorgeously cute performances shine in their own right.

Who would not instantly fall in love with the donkey? With lies like:
"Well have ya seen the size of her?" (when talking about carrying Mary and being tired)
