Nativity pictures online - Leicestershire youngsters can't wait for big day

"They're thoroughly excited about the performances and have been rehearsing for the past three weeks.
"I'm sure all the parents are going to be very proud."
Pupil Suzan Aszal, five, said: "I really love the mixture of songs – they're really festive and fun.''
Fellow pupil, Arya Johri, five, said: "I love the smallest sheep because she's so cute."
About 50 pupils from the school, aged three to seven, will be taking part.
At Montrose Primary, in Aylestone, Leicester, youngsters are putting the finishing touches to two performances – the traditional nativity and The Polar Express, which tells the tale of a young boy who boards a magical train on Christmas Eve, but doubts that it is heading to the North Pole.
Deputy head teacher Jane Measures said: "We're all really excited. This time of year is always full of fun for the children with lots of songs and dances to learn. Rehearsals have been going really well so I'm sure they will do their parents proud on the day."
