Some possibilities for short Christmas skits are a retelling of the birth of Jesus, a piece that encourages giving and love or an act that shows how people can better handle holiday stress. One unique idea is to put a spin on traditional stories by switching the perspective of the narrator.
For example, a skit that portrays the nativity scene may be performed from the view of one of the animals that is present, such as one of the Three Wise Men's camels or Mary and Joseph's donkey.
Another option is a skit that shows a couple trying to determine how and where they will spend their holidays. Many people can relate to this, and the skit can provide the viewers with healthy ways of communicating their wishes and perspectives.
