Nativity play season is under way, and 2,000 parents on the Netmums website have been discussing the ways in which the tradition has changed.

What are your memories of appearing in a nativity play, or going to see your children in one? Did you ever land a plum role, or were you forever relegated to the donkey’s back legs? Did you remember your lines, or fluff them completely? And what was the dream role you never landed?
