There is strife over the theme that was voted in–“It’s not easy being green”… many of us feel that it’s A) stupid and B) focuses on the negative aspects of Irish history and of course C) rips on the Children’s Television Workshop.
So there is bickering of the most childish sort going on, with people saying they hate the theme (which was voted on already) and people attacking the people who say they hate the theme, but no one has suggested a good alternative and nothing will change if there isn’t a better one suggested.
And so I thought… I potentially have the ear of thousands of creative, intelligent people… I’ll ask THEM!
And so I ask… can you think of a good theme?
The 2003 theme was “Children of Ireland - Forever Connected”
The 2002 theme was something about Irish heritage but I don’t remember what.
