Defiant Pete sings Christmas carol, orders audience to enjoy the holidays — or else

SAN ANTONIO — Stomping his feet and glaring defiantly at an audience of hundreds of parents, Pete Tedesco, 3, sang at his first Christmas performance and demanded that everyone have a Merry Christmas — or else.

Pete Tedesco's big performance“Pete was pretty adamant that we enjoy the holidays,” said school director Blanca Luna. “It was really touching when he demanded we have a Merry Christmas if we knew what was good for us.”

Pete sang the tranquil words of “Let it Shine” with righteous indignation. The message was clear: People better listen to what Pete had to say or there would be trouble and he wouldn’t be responsible for the consequences.

“I don’t know about you, but I’m going to go home right now to have a Merry Christmas as fast as possible,” said visibly shaken onlooker Brian Chasnoff. “That kid is merry as hell and he’s not going to take it any more.”
