My siblings and I used to do a yearly Christmas skit for our grandparents, and once we took them off guard with the angel telling Mary, "Don't be afraid! I have good news! I just saved a bunch of money on my car insurance by switching to Geico!"
I think angels might take exception to the idea that they wear pearls/beads.
I think the idea was the angels are supposed to be really shiny and sparkly but the Gates of Heaven are made of pearls so that really seems odd. Why is she wearing material the gates are made of? :-)
It's like that...
This British ad for the Christmas just passed has a brief Nativity scene. It's nice to see Christianity in a mainstream Christmas ad. Although i have this feeling that if it had been the boy in the scarf playing the angel, they wouldn't have had him wearing the pearls they put on the little girl!
