3 magical moments and a surprise ending for an unforgettable message


When the host of angels filled the skies, the shepherds didn’t stop to count them. They were too busy running to find the new born king.

The Performer shows 4 large cards with angels flying over the shepherds. Each side of the cards has a unique number. 'Let’s play a game called ‘Count the Angels!’ A volunteer is invited up to the front and dressed as a trainee shepherd. 

The Performer turns their back as the trainee shepherd mixes the cards and puts them into 4 stands so they face the audience. The Performer turns around, takes one glance at the cards and looks away. After a few seconds though he announces, ‘I counted 57 angels!' And after checking it correct!

The Performer now makes it even more difficult. ‘I like a challenge.’ The Performer not only turns away but ties a blind fold around his eyes as the ‘trainee shepherd’ turns any 3 cards around. Without any hesitation, the Performer calls out, that there are now 61 angels. ‘No wait, there is one angel missing' 

‘Ah I think I know where the missing angel is.’ The Performer puts a halo on.  ‘It’s me. My mum always said I was a little angel!’

The audience laugh/groan/show pity. ‘Actually, she said I was a little terror. But we are missing one angel’ The performer asks the trainee shepherd to help look for it. There are shouts from the audience. ‘It’s behind you!’ And there is the missing angel. It has magically appeared on the back of the volunteer!

The Performer now ends with a seasonal message. ’Today in the town of David a Saviour has been born.’
