Finally, the way they avoid saying "Christmas" is handled really tactlessly. Expressions like "Merry Winter" and "Winter Holiday Party" really stretch the willing suspension of disbelief, especially as Thomas is set in 1950s Britain and was created by an Anglican clergyman.
In contrast, Thomas & Friends: Ultimate Christmas includes some earlier Christmas stories, including the engines throwing a Christmas party to thank Mrs. Kindly for saving Thomas, and the engines searching for Thomas when he gets lost in the snow with the station's Christmas tree. I highly recommend it.
List of ACCEPTABLE Winter Greetings:
"Happy Hanukkah " (Jewish)
"Merry Malkh" (Festival of the Sun Worshippers)
"Merry Newtonmas" (Atheist Celebration replacing Christmas)
"Merry M'draniht" (Anglo Saxon Pagan Celebration)
"Merry Yalda" (Celebrates Winter Solace)
"Happy Kwanzaa" (Celebrates African American heritage)
"Happy HumanLight" (Humanist Celebration)
"Merry Quaid-e-Azam" (Muslim Celebration)
List of UNACCPTABLE Winter Greetings:
"Merry C H R I S TMAS" (Celebrates the birth of Jesus - DEFINITELY A NO-NO, REPORT ALL OFFENDERS IMMEDIATELY)
My son LOVES Thomas but this DVD went right in the GARBAGE!!!! THIS IS POLITICAL CORRECTNESS GONE OFF THE CLIFF!!! It seems now days every type of Christmas celebration under the sun is welcome and emphasized by the media, EXCEPT FOR THE ONE TRUE MEANING OF "C H R I S T MAS" because it celebrates the birth of our "LORD" - the ONLY unmentionable 4-letter word in our wonderful American Media!!!
