The Happyland Nativity

Rediscover the Christmas story with the Happyland characters

An angel in a rocket? The wise men arriving on a London bus? Mary and Joseph in a helicopter? Watch the Happyland Nativity bring Jesus’ birth to life is a fresh way.

Speak Life and Hope Together have recreated the nativity story in stop-motion animation to tell the true story and meaning of the very first Christmas Day.

Follow Mary and Joseph, the shepherds and angels, the wise men and the star through a quirky, animated adventure about the greatest story ever told: ‘So come to the manger, see God become small. The true Christmas story has room for us all.’
