Which is the Most Important Sound of Christmas?
I'm the donkey and the most important sound is my hooves: Clip-clop. Mary had to ride me a long way. If I had not carried her to Bethlehem, there would be no Christmas.
I am the cat, and the most important sound is: Meow. There was no place to sleep in the inn. I showed Mary the stable. If I had not led her to the stable, there would be no Christmas.
I'm the cow and the most important sound is: Moo. After the baby was born they used my manger for a crib. I just mooooved over. If I hadn't shared the manger, there would be no Christmas.
I'm the lamb and the most important sound is: baa! It is the sound I made when the angels told the shepherds about a new baby in Bethlehem. If I had not made that sound so the shepherds would run to see the new king, there would be no Christmas.
I know! I am the mouse and I heard the most important sound. It's...
Baa. You were not in the field.
Moo. You could not see the manger.
Meow. You were under the hay!
Clip-clop. You are too little!
Stop! The most important sound: shhh. That is what Mary whispered to the new baby Jesus. The new baby is what Christmas is all about.
Goodnight, baby Jesus, Goodnight.
