'Why ,children, did the mother of Lord Jesus Christ have her little baby in a manger ?'
Wolfy put his hand up.
'Because they were bombed out.'
Everyone turned to look at Wolfy the newcomer from London. He was one of the evacuated children who had arrived in the village with their families because of the Blitz. But he wasn't really from London; he was from somewhere else.
