The Nativity gets by on a wing and a prayer
Tea towels and old sheets are at a premium, while shops run out of tinsel for crowns and tin foil and coat-hangers for angel wings. One Glasgow primary has decided to wing it rather less lavishly this year.
Instructions sent home to parents on the requirements for angels specifically requested "small wings", a reference to last year's epic in which one angelic pupil turned up with a four-feet wingspan. This proved particularly dangerous to fellow members of the heavenly host, who disappeared off stage at the slightest flap.
