Could this be the funniest Nativity story on the internet? (VIDEO)

Nativity Story told by Children

Narrated by kids and performed by adults, you've never heard a story of Baby Jesus quite like this.

This holiday video from Southland Christian Church in Lexington, Kentucky, is a reminder that we adults still have a thing or two to learn from our kids when it comes to Christmas spirit. Sure, our children get a bad rap around the holidays: it’s hard to ignore their zeal for gifts and acting like stuff is the true meaning of Christmas, try as we might to tame our little present-monsters. But maybe, just maybe, they’ve been listening when we talk about the true meaning of Christmas, after all?

In this short film, members of the church asked their youngest parishioners to retell the story of the birth of Jesus. And the resulting narrative — chock full of imaginative details and downright funny dialogue — is priceless. Their telling of the story may clue you into things you’ve long forgotten about this classic tale or, frankly, never even thought about. And it gets even better: the kids’ words are illustrated by adults who are really good at lip-syncing. Trust me, it brings the story to life in a wholly new, totally charming way.
