  • I think its fine. I thought about going as a nun, husband as a monk, and the kids as angels. They didn't want to though. sniff.

  • You might offend someone but you probably wouldnt ever know it. If thats what he wants...go for it.

  • Go for it. I think it's a great idea. Just let him know that his actions must match those of Jesus.

  • Who gives a damn what others think?
    I went dressed as a nun for Halloween last year, and what made it REALLY funny was that I was almost 8 months pregnant. =D

  • Hairnazi, that's funny, because I can think of a lot of christians it would offend where I am. They'd be absolutely horrified.

  • I wouldn't worry what others think, but I would not let him be Jesus. I think it is taking a serious and sacred life, and making light of it and I would explain that the divine are not to be imitated. Jesus (and other religious persons) are one of a kind. I wouldn't make a costime of Mohammed, Buddah or Hare Krishna.
