An Unexpected Christmas

Hello dear friends
as you relax after all the
cooking and eating
talking and laughing
over Christmas...
I would love you to watch
this little video
performed by the children
of St Pauls Church
in Auckland, New Zealand
where I live.

Joyeux Noël


  1. Very sweet! I like that little boy who always says they won't be expecting that! :) Best wishes to you, Tammy

  2. The nicest telling of the story I've ever seen Shane. Talented little actors and sweet costumes. Thanks for sharing the video.

  3. Dearest Shane,
    What a lovely play and they got already 146,149 views! So naturally and so well played.
    Is Saint Paul's an Episcopal Church?
    That is what we are going to here in Dublin. We love the more traditional organ music and the Catholic Church mainly uses guitar music... Not quite what we want.
    Hugs to you and enjoy those special days. Are you celebrating also 2nd Christmas Day?

  4. Absolutely delightful! Credit must go to all concerned in this film, particularly the script writer. A wonderful interpretation of a story that has been retold many times.

  5. Thank you SOOOO much Shane I hadn't caught up with this new video. I utterly adore it!!! Much love & a big hug Catherine x0x0x0

  6. Hello Dear Shane
    Hope you had a really relaxing Christmas Day! That little video is just priceless and precious! and just a little bit "quirky" which makes it so very special.
    The story telling is amazing by those dear little kids with so much expression and enthusiasm.
    I just loved it!
    Love and hugs to you too,

  7. Dearest Shane,
    Just in reply to your comment; we don't live in Dublin, Ireland but in Dublin, Georgia of the USA. We are in the Southeast... Even though they claim here St. Patrick's Festival for being Irish but there are hardly Irish descendants living here.
    Our Midnight Mass was great. So you are singing in the choir than; wonderful! My Dad will be honored in January for being a men's choir member for 75 years. He is only honorary member for the last years as he cannot do the rehearsals standing up, like he used to. But it is an honor! Dad still sings, in the elderly choir now. He started at the age of 17...
    Hugs to you sweet friend.

  8. Dear Shane,
    it is gorgeous, and so wonderful, how sweet they perform and learned their lines, so precious!
    I hope your holydayes were wonderful, and happy,-mine were :-)

  9. Wonderful Shane! I hope you had a great Christmas and wish you all the best in 2013.

  10. Dear Shane, absolutelly lovely, lovely, lovely!!!! Thanks so much for sharing this and bring to all of us joy and peace! You're a kind soul. Hope, dear, you and all of yours have had a marvelous and so blessed Christmas time! Lots of kisses, Marie

  11. Oh! This is adorable -- I loved "Time for us to step in!" and "Looking out over heaven's balcony!" This is really a gem -- thank you, thank you for posting!

  12. Happy happy New Year Shane, all the best to you and yours! Hugs Mxx

  13. How precious. Thanks so much for sharing.

    Bella is indeed " beautiful" . She is from a shelter and was adopted about six years ago. She has added so much toour lives and we spoil her rotten.

    Thanks for visiting.


  14. Oh My Dear Shane ~ was a precious treasure this is in so many ways...I am sitting here in chilly Virginia shedding some happy tears first thing in the morning

    Thank you for sharing even if I am a wee bit late in seeing it ... we traveled a bit and I got behind catching up with friends around Christmas

    oxo sniff sniff

  15. This is such a fun way to tell the Christmas Story. A friend from KeriKeri posted this on Facebook before Christmas and we showed this at our Christmas Eve service at church (in northern CA).

    I am glad this video is getting lots of exposure. :)
