A Manger Scene - Comedy

This traditional Christmas story is told with a bit of humor, including Joseph who thinks Mary's "surprise" involves a new 4-wheel drive off-roader wagon and an innkeeper who speaks only in rhyme.  Throw in a "directionally challenged" Star who can't seem to find the stable, two clueless shepherds, a sheep who thinks her wool makes her look fat, and three Wise Men who are trying to prove how smart they are by playing "Jeopardy," and you've got the makings of a traditional story told in a non-traditional way.  The skit ends on a more serious note but the rest of the story is presented in a laid back and fun way, while keeping the original theme and message in tact. 

Themes: The Christmas Story; Jesus' birth

A Modern Day Birth - Comedy/Drama

How would the Christmas story have been different if Jesus had been born in our world today? That's what Gramps and his granddaughter, Meg, are trying to find out. Meg thinks life may have been easier for Mary if she had more of the "comforts" of today, and "Jesus wouldn't have to be born in a barn with a bunch of smelly animals!"  Using their imaginations, Gramps and Meg begin to think what this "alternate Christmas story" would have been like.  It doesn't take long to discover that it wouldn't be pretty.  The three Wise Men have been replaced by Oprah, Dr. Phil and Dr. Oz; Jerry Springer tries to prove the paternity of the baby Jesus; the Shepherds aren't afraid of the Angel at all and instead want to call Ghosthunters so they can be on tv; and Mary doesn't understand why all her friends are "unfriending" her on Facebook.  As Gramps points out, "That wouldn't be the humble beginnings God had in mind, and the focus wouldn't be where it needed to be: on God's love for us.  In the end, Meg discovers she likes the original Christmas story much better and asks Gramps to tell it to her one more time, allowing the true Christmas story to unfold for the audience.

Christ in Christmas - Drama

It's a typical winter afternoon: Mom is addressing Christmas cards, Dad is reading the paper and their daughter, Sally is painting her nails.  With each turn of the newspaper, Dad feels more and more that Christmas has become commercialized and the society has taken "Christ" out of Christmas. He feels society in general thinks the only good presents are the biggest and most expensive, and that no one thinks of anyone but himself.  In the midst of all his musings, the family discusses many upcoming activities like distributing winter coats their neighborhood has collected, sending phone cards to military personnel overseas, a live nativity and "adopting" a family for Christmas; however, the family seems oblivious to all the "Christ-like" activities they and many others are actually participating in. This begs the question, while commercialism does play a part in our society, have we completely taken Christ out of our Christmas?

Themes: Christmas, putting Christ in Christmas, helping others, ideas on helping people in our communities, commercialism

Gathering of Angels - Comedy

The time is nearing for Jesus' introduction to the world and God has requested His angels find a way to announce the news to the humans involved, like Joseph, Mary and the shepherds.  So Zuriel, the head angel, calls a meeting with three other angels to discuss the best way to approach the humans with this great news. The only problem is they are having a hard time coming up with an idea that will not appear scary, creepy, freaky, strange, weird, or bizarre to the earthlings.  One angel wants to send Mary a letter announcing “You may have already been selected to carry God’s child! and another angel thinks impersonating a sheep to tell the shepherds about Jesus' arrival is a good idea.  In the end, one angel suggests simply appearing to them and telling them not to be afraid might be the best solution.  Zuriel likes the idea but the others feel the humans will never "go for it,"  so Zuriel is left to take matters into her own hands.

Themes: Christmas; Angels announcing the coming birth of Jesus; human interaction with angels

Hark on the Ark - Comedy

Liza is writing a story of what it would have been like to have Christmas on the ark.  Noah and Mrs. Noah couldn't be more thrilled that the holy day has finally arrived but their sons and their wives, aren't in the Christmas spirit. All they can think about is the gloom the rain brings, along with frizzy hair, and the stench of the animals or the itchiness of the hay.  Even their Christmas carols are things like "Rain, rain go away" and "Raindrops keep falling on my head."  The whining and complaining continues until Noah and Mrs. Noah have had enough.  They set the record straight about the real meaning of Christmas, and the ability to be thankful no matter what situation you find yourself in.  By reminding the family that Jesus was born in a stable surrounded by animals, and Joseph and Mary didn't seem to complain about the stench or the itchy hay, the family begins to realize they truly do have much to be thankful for and that getting into the Christmas spirit, even on an ark, isn't as hard as they originally thought.

Themes: Christmas, Christmas on the ark, family togetherness, complaining, being thankful for what we have, thankfulness in any situation

Sam must then face the consequences of his own sinful actions, and set right what was not his to judge in the first place.  He is told "Jesus came to give everyone a better life, not just those who deserve it."  In the end, Sam and his friends learn some valued lessons about greed, friendship, and love.

Reporting from Bethlehem - Comedy

It's a big night in Bethlehem: it seems a new King has just been born and KJOY News Reporter, Carol Jensen, is trying to get the scoop. Trouble is, her Anchorman boss, Jim Banks, wants nothing to do with the story. As far as he's concerned, pursuing the story is a huge waste of time! But as Carol persists, she interviews the Innkeeper (a Bronx-like tough guy) and little Donkey who came all the way from Nazareth carrying a very special lady. A breaking news story begins to unfold and Carol begins to dig a little deeper, much to the dismay of her boss. Interviews with the Shepherd "Dudes", a gnarly sheep, a "diva" Northern Star, and some lost Wise Men further convince Carol this is a story worth airing. But when Carol sees the baby Jesus for herself, she realizes that while this is the biggest story to date, some things are meant to be held as sacred and holy. Deciding not to air the story, Carol instead simply breathes in the most holy night of all. The ending to this skit has the opportunity for the manger scene to be presented, and the director has the choice to end it there or sing any song or hymn of his/her choice.

Themes: Christmas; Jesus birth

Room with a View - Comedy

It would be a quiet night at the stable in Bethlehem except that the animals can't sleep. It seems that a bright and mysterious light is shining through the window; not to mention the large crowd of people that have gathered in the city over the last few days.  With a strange "vibe" felt in the air, Mac (horse), Buford (cow) and Sheba (sheep) wonder what's going on.  Then Remmy, a small donkey from Nazareth, enters the building.  She's tired after her long journey and looks forward to her bed of hay. However, when her masters, Joseph and Mary, also show up in the stable, it seems Remmy has some explaining to do to the other animals. Remmy begins to clear up the mystery of why a bright star has suddenly appeared in the sky: "It's sign," she says, "that a King is coming." But the other animals misunderstand Remmy's reference to a "King" and they begin to prepare for a visit from Royalty, by polishing their hooves and combing their wool.  When the animals discover that the "King" is a baby, they are disappointd at first but then realize they are witness to a historical event: the birth of a savior. 

Told from the animal's point of view, before the wise men or shepherds came, the Christmas Story, is presented in a completely unique and different way, yet the overall meaning remains the same: Jesus birth is truly a miracle to behold.

Themes: The Christmas Story; Jesus birth; Christmas; the King of Kings; Christmas Story as seen through the eyes of the animals; Joseph and Mary

But when they all witness the new addition of the nativity set being added to the decor, everyone shows concern, since they have no idea who these people are. Only the Angel atop the Christmas Tree is delighted with their presence, since she has been awaiting their arrival in the household for a long time.

The Ginger Man's Christmas - Comedy

This skit was originally written for entertainment purposes without a "spiritual" theme; however, the main idea of the skit is to be yourself and let your own unique abilities shine.  This would be perfect for a school setting or a Christmas program outside of church.

Everyone at the North Pole is cranky trying to get ready for Christmas Eve: the elves are behind on their toy making, the reindeer don't want to do their flight training, Santa can't find his hat, and Mrs. Claus can't find her gumdrops for her gingerbread cookies.  But all of that changes when Gingie, one of the gingerbread cookies magically comes to life.  Suddenly, everyone is happier and in a better mood.  As Gingie looks around, he notices everyone at the North Pole has a job to do except for him, so he tries to find a way to help out.  After a series of mishaps, Gingie learns that the best thing he can do for the North Pole, is just to be himself. 

Themes: Christmas; being yourself; we all have our own unique talents; we're all special in our own way; we each have something to offer

The Popularity Contest - Comedy

Who is more popular at Christmas: Santa or Jesus? Well, that's exactly what Santa intends to find out.  Santa has been up all night doing research on his computer.  Mrs. Claus is horrified to find out Santa has "googled" Jesus.  "Is that even allowed?" she wants to know.  But according to Santa, anyone can be googled, even Jesus.  After all, Santa believes it's important to keep an eye on his competition.  His research shows gift giving is down and letters to Santa have slacked off, while more people are saying prayers and attending church instead of Christmas shopping. Santa feels more and more people are relying on Jesus instead of him, and he doesn't like it one bit! So, he sets a meeting with Jesus to discuss who should have the rightful place of honor at Christmas.  After all, Santa feels that while Jesus may have laid claims to the holiday first, he (Santa) has really made it into what it is today.  Through their discussion, Santa begins to realize he has lost the focus of what Christmas really is and he learns that Jesus isn't so bad after all, and that perhaps their is room during the holidays for the both of them.
