Good Kick Wenceslas

Over And Out For Welsh Youngsters

Welsh shopkeepers called in the police - because they felt children were singing Christmas carols too loudly. The 29 children, aged six to 11, were initially asked to stop by a shopping centre security guard. Head teacher Ian Jones, who was leading the group, refused and minutes later a police support officer arrived to ask the youngsters to leave. Mr Jones, of Sant Sior School in Llandudno, branded the incident at the town's Victoria Centre as "ridiculous". Centre manager Sue Nash admitted the police intervention was a mistake and promised the kids could return to the centre next weekend.

I find it so amazing how something so small can turn into something so big. What harm were the children doing, other then singing. I would think most people would enjoy that.

Ah, Ebenezer Scrooge lives on in the person of that security guard. While I wouldn't want anyone to lose their job at Christmas, I hope he gets a good talking to.

Peace!
