Sample Text:

Narrator:                            I mean, a Christmas without presents?

Whole Cast:                       (Together) Unthinkable!

Child 2:                               But I think it’s important to remember how much nicer it is to give than to receive.

Narrator:                            That’s true. It brings far more joy. I love seeing everyone’s faces as they open their presents.

Child 1:                               But

Narrator:                            Oh no. Not you again! Anyone would think your last name was truly Scrooge!

Child 1:                               I’m just telling it as it is! I mean, we all have stories to tell of the ‘not so perfect Christmas’.

Child 2:                               Like when my mum forgot to take the turkey out of the oven. Burnt to a cinder, it was! And so we had to make do with just Brussel sprouts and carrots!

Child 3:                               Yes, I remember our dad nearly setting the house on fire whilst lighting the Christmas Pudding.

Child 4:                               And the star getting lost during the school nativity – which nearly resulted in half the teachers having a nervous breakdown!

Child 5:                               And the year I had such a bad cold I couldn’t utter a croak during the carol service!

Child 6:                               And the year every one of my family managed to fall out with each other!

Child 7:                               Yes, so much for ‘tis the season to be jolly’. That’s sometimes way off the truth.

Narrator:                            Now, I wonder why that is? I mean, with everything that’s going on, how could you not have a good time?

Child 8:                               But that’s just the point! There’s way too much expectation!

Child 9:                               Everybody is expected to have the best time!

Child 10:                             And so often this can result in you having the very worst time!

Child 11:                             You’ve only got to watch Christmas EastEnders to see that in practice!
