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 <sporks5000@hotmail.com>

A Must For South Park Fans!
25 August 2006 | by (Canada(Montreal,Quebec)) – See all my reviews

Rated NR(would be Rated R for Strong Language and Violence).

Back in 1992 college students Trey Parker and Matt Stone made a short film called The Spirit Of Christmas which was the basis for South Park which would be released in 1997.However FOX executives saw the original short and asked Trey Parker and Matt Stone to make a Christmas card.Then another Spirit Of Christmas short was born.Unlike the 1992 short this one is more like the series.The boys now have names.Cartman talks and makes racist jokes.Kenny's voice is muffled and he dies.There is even a small part with Stan's girlfriend Wendy but she does not speak.This short is also called Jesus Vs Santa.In the South Park episode "A Very Crappy Christmas" the boys make the same Spirit Of Christmas short.As with the 1992 one you can find this on youtube.Spirit Of Christmas is about Jesus who confronts the four South Park boys.He is looking for Santa Claus because he wants to fight him.So they fight but the boys try to put a stop to it.Spirit Of Christmas is a hilarious South Park short and I recommend it!
