But I guess it wasn’t like that for Imogene. For her, the Christmas pageant turned out to be all wonder and mystery, as if she just caught on to what Christmas was all about. When it was over we had a party in the basement, but the Herdmans didn’t stay. They didn’t have any cocoa and they didn’t walk off with all the cookies, and they wouldn’t even take their candy canes.
Well let me tell you, Helen Armstrong is not the only woman alive who can run a Christmas Pageant! I made up my mind just to do the best I could under the circumstances, but now I’m going to make this the best Christmas Pageant ever, and I’m going to do it with the Herdmans! After all, they raised their hands and nobody else did. And you're going to help me!
Well…actually, I didn’t plan to go. You know how crowded it is, they can use my seat. I’ll just stay home, put on my bathrobe, relax… There’s never anything different about the Christmas pageant. Away in a Manger always sounds to me like a closet full of mice. Does that mean I have to go?
I didn’t dare raise my hand. Imogene would have killed me! She said, “I’m going to be Mary in this play, and if you open your mouth or raise your hand you’ll wish you didn’t.” And I said, “I’m always Mary in the Christmas pageant.” And she said, “Go ahead then, and next spring when the pussywillows come out I’ll stick a pussywillow so far down your ear that nobody can reach it…and it’ll sprout there and grow and grow, and you’ll spend the rest of your life with a pussywillow bush growing out of your ear!”
My favorite thing about church is there are no Herdmans! I don’t care what everyone else said, that’s what they really thought. All that other stuff is okay but the main good thing about church is that the Herdmans aren’t there, ever. They’re all the worst one. Gladys isn’t big, but she’s fast, and she’s mean, and she bites. I stay away from them, I go to church.
Oil? What kind of present is oil? We get better presents from the welfare! If they’re kings, they can get the baby out of the barn, and tell the innkeeper where to get off! Well I wouldn’t just hang around out in the barn. I’d go get a room. Then I’d throw somebody out. I’d tell them I’ve got this baby and it’s the middle of winter…so either get out or move over.
Shazam! Out of the black night, with horrible vengeance, the Mighty Marvo… (gets interrupted) The Mighty Marvo, in Amazing comics. Out of the black night, with horrible vengeance… (gets interrupted again) Out of nowhere, right? In the black of night, right? Shazam!
Who’s Herod in the play? He’s out to kill the baby, and he isn’t even in the play? Let Charlie be Herod, and he says, go get me that baby. And they say okay, because he’s a king and all…but then they don’t do it! They go back and get Herod! Joseph gets the shepherds together and they go wipe out Herod!
