Heh. I've just come back from the school Christmas pageant <cringe>[1] 
and this is exactly what I needed to see things in perspective.

[1] though not as much as previous years; this year my objections were 
only to too-loud unmelodious singing [2], parents who think darkness 
and silence are mutually exclusive, and one very very bad song. The 
thing itself was decently Christian, and decently done.

[2] I wish they'd give me fourth and fifth grade for one hour, or better 
still, fifteen minutes each school day for a month, so I could teach 
them what I'm teaching the church children's choir. If my nine- to 
eleven-year-olds can learn, so can those nine- to eleven-year-olds.
