Signs of the Advent Apocalypse - Part 1

I'm pretty sure that this is what St. Francis intended when he pushed the Advent nativity:

LIFE STYLE EXTRA (UK) - Britney Spears new son, Sean Preston, is to play the baby Jesus in his very own nativity scene this Christmas.

The pop princess, and husband Kevin Federline, have transformed his bedroom into the nativity setting in celebration of his first festive holiday.

The beautiful singer has splashed out on the lavish decorations - which include six waxwork models and several life-size toy donkeys and cattle.

The 23-year-old singer is so excited about her first Christmas as a mum she has even bought a cherrywood style manger for her baby.

A source close to the star is quoted by Britain's Daily Star newspaper as saying: "It cost an absolute fortune. But at least she didn't have to buy a baby Jesus - because Sean is playing the part." [source]

I thought about parodying this, but where to begin?

An update of the "1950's Hollywood Does Christmas". It is so sad to see all the wannabees of the "in" crowd mislead to what Christ's coming to die for us was. Once the wine, women[men] and song - clouds their mind, the message of John the Baptist - REPENT & prepare for your Saviour, seems to be sooo uncool. When most teens finally understand this [usually after crying their eyes out over wasted lives - yes I went through that crying more than you would ever believe] so much of their life and effective for serving our Saviour has been lost. Instead of listening to our new iPods on Christmas afternoon, maybe we should read from St Luke the story of the Holy Birth. And then the next day the ministry of Christ daily. Merry Christmas
