Probably the worst "Christmas" story ever!, 1 September 2014
Author: StanCanada from Canada

While we enjoy the Heartland series, this is probably the worst "Christmas" story we have ever seen. :-( Two thirds of the story focuses on digging a trench for stranded horses through a big snow bank that mere humans can easily navigate, but the poor pathetic horses can't! So . . . the majority of the show is consumed by a dimwit village digging a trench through the snow bank, complete with a boardwalk to protect the horses' tender tootsies! Duh.

Then for the "Christmas" portion, you can actually hear a Christmas carol being sung in a church in the background, but the Heartland bunch don't join in the Christmas festivities at the church in favour of spending their evening soaking up suds in a neighbouring bar. Then when they finally get home for Christmas dinner: No giving of thanks, or even acknowledgement of the meaning of Christmas; they all ungratefully and unceremoniously dig into the turkey dinner like pigs at the trough.

This is a political CBC demonstration of something that has nothing whatsoever to do with Canadian culture and Christmas. :-( Kudos to the tax payer supported Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, who never cease to fail us in promoting their low life anti-religious, anti-Canadian culture and interests at taxpayers expense!
