7. Flying Cathedral
7. Flying cathedral

The inflatable church in last year's 12 Days of Kitschmas was a triumphant coming together of the church and hot air. But this year's soaraway offering makes last year's ground-based, sacred inflatable so... 2002.

Kubicek Balloons, from the Czech Republic, have blown us away with the world's first flying cathedral. Its purpose? Evangelism, maybe? Social justice? A greater understanding between ethnic communities?

Living, as we do, in the age of showbiz, there's only one legitimate purpose – publicity. As Kubicek announce, in admirable and wonderfully broken English: "That evening and the next day domestic and foreign media are richer with information about the birth of a flying church. The balloon even has not reached its destination and it has already been the subject of publicity all over the world! The customer is very satisfied."
