"Blurring the lines is an act of faithfulness"

Not sure I understand the difference - no matter which period or whether fantasy or not, religion is still clearly represented in the Christmas/holiday trappings. That was the original point - that religion was represented on ST.

Out of curiosity, I revisited the scene via Youtube...

It's clearly a fantasy, but also taking place (as least in some respects) in Picard's time. There are all kinds of contemporary electric doodads around the house - lights on the tree, etc.. and the boy's present is a model fighter jet. The bigger question for me? Why does everyone - including Picard - have a pronounced British accent when he allegedly grew up in France?

I don't think that whole scenario was very well thought out. It came across as Picard wishing he lived in a Dickens novel.

Picard is named after a French astronomer.

I'm almost positive he talks about growing up in France at different points throughout the series.

I agree Pondy - most of that movie was ill conceived imho.

There is also a region of France called Picardy.

Can anyone even come close to making sense out of that schizoid statement? (apology to schizophrenics). That was written on the daily sign outside the local church. Keep in mind this the place where people actually vote here...

Doesn't blurring the lines mean snorting cocaine? Or does the phrase have some other meaning I don't know about?

Never heard it used in that context before. Blurring the lines means making everything fuzzy and uncertain.

The lines don't blur when you snort cocaine - they disappear up your nose.

Yeah that's what I thought.
