Friday Break: SNL’s St. Joseph’s Christmas Mass Spectacular


Saturday Night Live last weekend included “St. Joseph’s Christmas Mass Spectacular,” a satirical promotional video of church life around Christmas.

What I find most interesting about this is the comments — a vast majority of comments are articulating the degree to which this depiction is accurate. What depictions do you think are accurate? Or which are exaggerations? Which are valid versus unfair?
