On the small Mediterranean island of Porto Buio, the live nativity scene is the traditional event of every Christmas there. But this year the child who has played the baby Jesus for years has fully outgrown the role, and since the island’s birth rate has been zero for years, the only solution which the new mayor has come up with is to change Jesus’s nationality. And maybe even his religion!!
