A while back, I attended an intimate christening at a small chapel in Bathurst where the main foyer wall proudly displayed the local Sunday school children’s finger paintings. This one in particular (above) caught my attention and I couldn’t help but laugh.
But while I thought the painting was comical for my own reasons, I later learned that it revealed a whole lot more than just a family of die-hard Star Wars fans. My step-mum-in-law informed me that during the 2006 census in Australia, some 55,000 Aussies marked themselves down as “Jedi” when answering the question about their religion. Now THAT’S funny!
