Holiday kitsch
« on: December 18, 2010, 11:50:31 AM »
So I clicked a couple of links about saying Merry Chistmas and all that and the blogs look like good ones; and the second one linked to this hilarious Cavalcade of Bad Nativities which has a sequel.  Very funny pictures and snarky titles and commentary:

The Anglican cathedral, which sits above downtown "Promenades de la cathédrale" shopping mall, has opened an "Advent Chapel" for this month in the space that used to be their bookshop (bookshop has gone online now); a quiet space where people can have tea or hot chocolate, read, be quiet, meditate and pray if they so desire, whatever their faith.

There are evergreen boughs, but no decorations or other Christmas kitch.

They interviewed a Muslim lady who was thrilled with the quiet space...
" Eure \'Ordnung\' ist auf Sand gebaut. Die Revolution wird sich morgen schon \'rasselnd wieder in die Höhe richten\' und zu eurem Schrecken mit Posaunenklang verkünden: \'Ich war, ich bin, ich werde sein!\' "

The Zombie Nativity!
 
 
 
 
I may be somewhat biased but it's my opinion the worse offenders at this time of year are those who subscribe to the Christian faith but don't really practice it. In almost every small community where I have lived - and there have been a few - it's the least religious who put the most into Christmas decorating.

More cute than kitsch - building a Christmas tree with picture books (video):
