School nativity: turn your phones off…please!

Can I just ask a favour?

If you’re going to a school nativity, concert, play, etc, etc. please turn your phone/camera OFF.

I attended my sons Christmas play earlier this week. He was great. All of the children were wonderful. Well, those I could see over the phones getting waving about the audience anyway.

I’m sure that the children would much prefer to see a sea of smiling faces rather than an avalanche of rectangular plastic phone cases being pointed all over the shop!

Let’s live for the moment and experience these events with our children rather than a bystander watching through a view finder. Memories to cherism, not pixels on a mobile device.

Sorry. Rant over.
