We are asking for your help, please!
On Sunday, 30th November, Mary and Joseph and the donkey begin their annual special journey (Posada) around our parish and area. They are from our children’s nativity set and they arrive in Church on Christmas Eve. They made the journey successfully last Advent and kept a blog of their journey. They visit a wide variety of places and receive a huge welcome. Have a look at the blog – click here.
Before they set off we needed a name for the donkey, and so we set up a poll here. We asked for votes for one of the chosen names.
This year we went going slightly ‘high brow’ and the choice was from donkeys names from literature. We offered:
Benjamin from George Orwell’s Animal Farm,
Dapple, Sancho Panza’s donkey from Cervantes’ Don Quixote and
Modestine, the characterful donkey which bore Robert Louis Stevenson in his ‘Travels with a donkey.’
And now the votes have been counted and we can verify the result. Benjamin 19% of votes, Dapple 23%, Modestine 25% and Puzzle 33%.
