There are many scenes that pass. For example:
- Grace Bradley explains the part of Mary to Imogene Herdman
- Beth Bradley and Alice Wendleken explain to Imogene what a Christmas pageant is
- Imogene tells Alice how she'll punish her if she volunteers for the part of Mary
- Alice and Beth talk about what Alice is writing in her notebook
- Alice and Beth talk about how you're not supposed to say Mary was pregnant, you're supposed to say she was "great with child"
- Helen Armstrong talks to Grace about how to choose who will play Mary
- All of the church women give excuses why they can't be in charge of the pageant so Grace has to do it
