Grinch Watch


As we gear up for Festivus, this advice from a website developed by the British department of education sounds a little, well, downbeat:

“For very young children, Father Christmas can be terrifying, and if you are planning a visit from Santa, you’ll need to make sure that fearful children are near an exit.”

This doesn’t sound much like fun either:

“The advice suggested that head teachers hold school assemblies, called “The aftermath of Christmas”, in which children act out opening presents and advent calendars and then throw the packaging on the floor to highlight the waste of paper at Christmas.”

Bah! Humbug!
