That jolly old soul, Santa Claus is having a bad year, he has just been crucified by a man who is protesting the commercialization of Christmas. Santa is nailed to a five metre cross.
This has been a tough year for Santa Claus; the latest assault on the Kris Kringle was designed to be a protest about the commercialization of Christmas.
A CBC reports informs us that Art Conrad has nailed an effigy of Santa to a five metre crucifix that is palce in Conrad’s front yard. 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."
Conrad took his protest a bit further; his Christmas cards have a picture of the crucified Claus and the message "Santa died for your MasterCard."
According to the CBC, the protest is also Conrad's way of poking fun at political correctness. Conrad feels that people don't express their feelings because they're afraid of what other people might think.
Conrad’s neighbours have had a mixed reaction to the display with some being offended and others simply curious.
"I don't really know what to think. I know it's about God but Santa has nothing to do with it,” Jake Tally, a neighbour, said
