Christmas spirit is in the air. And with Christmas spirit comes Christmas movies. Most of them are humorous or sweet. But there has been recent talk that Rudolph the Rednosed Reindeer may be banned for different reasons. For example, in the movie Rudolph is bullied because he has a red nose which makes him different. While some people fail to see the offense in Rudolph’s movie, others see things more clearly.

In summary, Rudolph was bullied and excluded because he was different. But when Santa might have to skip Christmas one year, he saved the day by lighting the way with his red nose. Then Rudolph was considered the “hero” and was finally considered one of the reindeers.

At first, people thought the moral of the movie is to not offend others because of their differences. Now people consider the movie differently for segregating Rudolph from the other reindeers due to his red nose. People didn’t know that the only reason the reindeer were “shouting with glee” was because Rudolph saved Christmas.

The topic is very controversial, and many people think that Rudolph shouldn’t be banned. But perhaps it should be banned because all the movie teaches is that exclusion of people is acceptable if they are different.
