This play begins by portraying the typical “manger story” telling of Christmas in a sort of tongue in cheek way. A Wiseman is picking his nose, the shepherds are “baaaaing” too loudly and Joseph almost drops baby Jesus, to name just a few.

But soon the action turns not to the Christmas pageant play they just witnessed but to the players and what Christmas Eve looks like in their homes when the show is over and exactly where the Christmas spirit can be found when the manger is put into storage for another year.
