In this joyous holiday season, some units might be tempted to go the extra mile in crafting Christmas programs and activities. As a friendly reminder, please remember that Church policy discourages the use of live camels in LDS buildings, especially in the chapel. Having stain-resistant carpet in your chapel does not constitute authorization for an exception to this policy.
Based on certain problems in the past, a variety of other large mammals, small mammals, reptiles and birds may be on the list of suspect species for performances and displays in Church buildings. I'm pretty sure that donkeys and goats are out, and pythons. Probably chickens, too. This may lessen the appeal of local pageants, missionary events, displays, and booths, of course, but there are reasons. Check with your Church leaders first.
