Angels wings at
It’s that time of year again – the magical Christmas season, when the Archangel Gabriel, with spectacular angels wings, descended to earth to proclaim the arrival of the Messiah!
Spectacular angels with outspread angels wings
Angels wings and tinsel halos
Yes, it must have been a spectacular site for the humble shepherds! Imagine, those wonderful celestial creatures with outstretched angels wings must have struck terror into the hearts of those simple shepherds. How would I react? I’d also be petrified probably!
Children love to be angels with angels wings or shepherds in Nativity plays
For children, Christmas is the time when they hear the wonderful story of Jesus being born. It’s also the chance for them to be in a Nativity play. Little girls want to be Mary and boys want to be Joseph. Then there are the angels. These are normally girls, wearing white sheets, with angel wings made out of wire and tinsel. Oh, and don’t forget the wonky halos finishing off the costume! This all creates a gathering of angels no proud parent will ever forget!
And what about the shepherds?
Boys are normally the shepherds, wearing dressing gowns or kaftans with dish cloths on their heads.
Stunning angel wings tattoos
At one play I went to, a few shepherds got into a scrap on stage!
At another play one of the shepherds fell off the stage and into the orchestra pit! (Fortunately, he didnt hurt himself – he was just very, very embarrassed!) I bet he wished he had a pair of angel wings to whisk him away from all the laughter!
Dressing up as angels is not restricted to children.

Adults also like to dress up as angels at Christmas parties.
I’ve seen some very glamorous angels at parties, complete with huge wings and glistening halos! Some of these angels even had tattoos of angels to complete their theme for their party…
It’s not necessary to have a huge angel wing tattoos, dainty tattoos of angels wings like Nicole Richie’s are really cute!
