A SEEMINGLY normal couple have confirmed they are actually going to midnight mass.
Kate and Nathan Muir insisted they cannot wait to listen to a priest talk passionately about a virgin giving birth to a magic baby while all their friends will still be drinking very heavily indeed.
Kate Muir said: “At first people think we’re kidding when we say we’re going to a church in the dead of night. But their amusement quickly turns to confusion – and then anger – when we ask if they’d like to join us.
“And it’s not one of those lightweight masses that starts at 11 and ends at midnight. This one kicks off at 12 and nobody’s getting out until 1am at the earliest after some proper, old school worship. It’s hardcore, just like the magic baby would have wanted.”
Nathan Muir added: “We’re mainly in it for the hymns and the chanting.
“It does sound a bit weird when I say it out loud.”
