Christmas 2.0

Given how reliant we are on technology and how much of our lives revolve around social media these days, it's amazing to think how we survived without them not so long ago. What's even more interesting, however, is to think about how historic events -- like, oh say the birth of Jesus -- would have been so incredibly different if they had existed then

This hilarious video shows just how it may have played out if Mary, Joseph and the wise men had had been tweeting and Facebooking the arrival of Jesus. Check it out and see what you think.

Such a fun look Christmas! I love the Facebook post announcing the birth, the Twitter hash tag #worshipthebaby, and to think of the Wise Men shopping for gifts for Amazon is awesome.

I'm sure there will be plenty who find it offensive for one reason or another -- as evidenced by the comments on YouTube already -- but I think it's brilliant. There's plenty of blasphemous material and religious hatred out there, but this seems to be more of a fun what-if look at the events with no ill will.

Kudos to the creator!
