Childishness at Christmas time

From the Zeitgeist column of The Guardian Weekend (18 Dec 1993)

On his LBC show last week, Sun* columnist Richard Littlejohn railed against a politically correct nursery school in Essex, whose Christmas play featured not Santa Claus but MOTHER Christmas (to explore issues of femininity and feminism).

Littlejohn complained that it was using Christmas to indoctrinate children and that it debases and devalues Christmas

Mother Christmas doesnt exist! he protested.

Zeitgeist hates to be the one to have to tell him, but someones got to; Richard, neither does FATHER Christmas.

( * The Sun is a rabidly right-wing daily tabloid, aimed at people who do not need to take their shoes and socks off to register their IQ score.)
