This was taught at the born-again Christian school I attended circa 1983-85. Little kids cried. We also watched 700 Club vids in class.

Wow, Rebecca... you had to listen to that nonsense in school? Doing that to kids is scary in and of itself.

I came out of that school after grade 10 un born-again but feeling a lot more normal than I thought I was. And yet I kind of agree with the point if it's meant to expose how Christmas has become all about forced sentimentality, greed and pressies buying, and an excess of resource using competitive decorating, just because those things can get out of hand. It should be about annual hedonistic sheer celebration really, and consuming excess from the harvest... all hail Baal the fruitful! Have some more stuffing and cider! :^)
