Well, I laughed at most of it. The chubby kid in the red sweater was a little disturbing though.

I guess it's amusing on a certain level but I also think it's kind of mean to do that to the children just to amuse the adults. The kids acted like kids ... no surprises there.

My take on It Is this....

I am not a religious person but this video shows that the parents of these children seem to have taught nothing of the origins of Christmas to their children.

All children expect these days Is expensive presents and I find that very sad.

The whole meaning of Christmas has become so commercialised that It's obscene to me.

Very true. But in defense of the children, I have to admit if someone built up excitement in giving me a special early Christmas gift and then I opened it to find a rotten banana, I'd probably be wondering what kind of freak I was related to ... okay, I do that any way but you know what I mean. At a time like that, any religious training or Christmas spirit probably wouldn't spring to mind.

BUT ... I do agree with your sentiments.

Also, I can't really comment specifically on the little boy you two mention because I confess I quit watching the clip about halfway through.

The little girl with the black banana was adorable.
