Q: How do I buy more Spotlights? I'm new to the site, and I've actually already bought some, but I've forgotten how to do it!

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

Ever wondered what would have happened if it had been the three wise women instead of the three wise men? They would have...

asked for directions

arrived on time

helped deliver the baby

cleaned the stable

brought practical gifts

made a casserole

and there would be peace on earth.

BUT...What would they have said as they left?

“Did you see the sandals Mary was wearing with that gown?

I heard Joseph isn't even working right now.

And that donkey they are riding has seen better days too.

Virgin, my ass. I knew her in high school. And another thing, that baby doesn't look anything like Joseph.

Want to bet on how long it will take before you get your casserole dish back?

Did you see that drummer boy? He can beat my drum anytime.”
