In protest to the commercialism of Christmas, a man named Art Conrad from Bremerton, Washington put up a giant Santa Claus nailed to a crucifix. "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." On one of his Christmas cards, he took a picture of the ordeal and wrote the caption "Santa died for your MasterCard" underneath.


I think Conrad has a point, Christmas has become more about the presents in most households and the income for large corporations trying to sell their products, but he killed it with this tacky display. I feel bad for the kids who have to drive past and see this.

Here's the santa:

Santa isn't real

Most believers will find this brave display uncomforting. That sting is due to the reality - that the Santa Lie and the Spirituality Lie are two closely related phenomenon. Money, power, control. I assume most folks know that Santa isn't real. Why then lie? Examine modern myths, such as spirituality itself, and admit that others profit greatly from ignorance. Most people realize in their heart of hearts that god simply can't and doesn't exist. Just as children inherently suspect santa but cling as long as possible to avoid losing the gifts. Way to raise your kids as mindless believers and reward them with consumerism. What a tragedy.
