You know, between the travel headaches, family tensions, rampant commercialization, the PC movement, and the anti-PC movement, sometimes you just gotta step back and chuckle and the rediculousness.

This is one such example...

‘Santa died for your MasterCard’
Man nails Claus to cross to protest commercialism of Christmas

AP - Associated Press, updated 1 hour, 48 minutes ago

BREMERTON, Wash. - Art Conrad has an issue with the commercialism of Christmas, and his protest has gone way beyond just shunning the malls or turning off his television.

The Bremerton resident nailed Santa Claus to a 15-foot crucifix in front of his house.

"Santa has been perverted from who he started out to be," Conrad said. "Now he's the person being used by corporations to get us to buy more stuff."

There's an urban legend that a department store in Japan tried to do a big Christmas display for the Western tourists, but they got their traditions slightly mixed up when doing their research and thus put up a big crucified Santa display...I doubt it is true, because I've heard so many different versions of the story, but it is still funny...


It's people like you what cause unrest!
