Christmas is not just about getting presents, although you might be forgiven for thinking otherwise if you've been watching the telly.
The story of the baby Jesus's birth in a manger is, of course, where it all began and what better way to be reminded of that than going to see a festive school nativity play.
This week Looking Back has pulled out some old photos from schools in our area – hopefully they will bring back a few memories of nervous first steps in the acting world for our readers – they certainly did for this former shepherd!
Though the nativity is not just for primary school kids – as we can see from this picture of a play featuring a real donkey outside the Bishop's Palace proves.
If your child's school is holding a nativity play this year, don't forget to send your photographs of the evening to the Journal.
You can email them to firstname.lastname@example.org or post them to Wells Journal, Southover, Wells BA5 1UH.
