The "It's Still Christmas" Service

Archdruid: We sing our first song, Yule Never Walk Alone.

All: Isn't that a bit Christmassy?

Archdruid: Well it is still Christmas.

All: Yes, you're right - it is still Christmas. Mine's a sherry.

Confession:

All: We confess we've forgotten it's still Christmas. We've started to leave the lights off on the Moot House. We've taken to kicking the singing snowmen on the drive as we walk past. We've been tempted to take the Tree down the dump. And there is no elf in us.

Hymn: Brightest and best of the LEDs of the evening

All: Isn't that a bit Christmassy?

Archdruid: Well it is still Christmas.

All: Yes, you're right - it is still Christmas. Mine's another sherry.

Santa: Ho-ho-ho!

All: Your time's past, though, big man. Get back in your box!

Santa: Oh. Oh...... Oh.

Hymn: "Somewhere over the rainbow".

All: Isn't that a bit Christmassy?

Archdruid: Well it is still Christmas.

All: Yes, you're right - it is still Christmas. I'll skip the sherry, though. My stomach's playing up....

Archdruid: And so, in reverence and wonder, we turn to our crib scene - gaze in awe on the baby with his mother and Joseph; the sheep, cows, asses, oxen, alligators, spacepeople-come-travelling and zebras.

All: That's all very well - but where's the Magi?

Archdruid: They're still in the loft..

All: The loft? What are they doing there?

Archdruid: Well, it is still Christmas.

All: And also with Yule.
