A heart warming tale of four children trying to decide which to cheer for: Jesus, or Santa. It almost makes one wonder what Brian Boitano would do in this situation. In the end, though, they decide that Christmas isn't a time for settling old scores, Christmas is about one thing: presents. Written by Austin Williams <>

Did You Know?


The word "fuck" is used roughly 18 times within the 5 minute short. While 18 may not sound like a lot, this is roughly an average of saying this word once every 17 seconds - even more than Casino (1995)'s average of every 25 seconds and Scarface (1983)'s average of every 49 seconds. See more »

Pretty darn funny.
11 February 2006 | by (Long Beach, California) – See all my reviews

stars: Trey Parker as Stan, Cartman, Santa and Brian Boitano.

Matt Stone as Kyle, Jesus and Kenny.

A cheaply done 5 minute Chrismtas card....and it's pretty good. it's about Jesus coming to South Park to find Santa and they get in a fight (killing Kenny). Meanwhile the foul mouthed boys cuss and cuss and even meet Brian Boitano. i watched it on the internet and I'm not sure where to find it. It's good though and any fan of South Park should watch it. Contains language and violence.

My rating: B. 5 mins.
