Santa hangs.

Bah Humbug! A Canadian man has upset some people, after he put an effigy of Santa Claus on a cross on his front lawn to make a statement about the orgy of consumption in the modern world. Above Santa's head, the man has inscribed the words 'Sumptum Fac Donec Consumptus Sis.' Roughly translated, it means 'Shop till you drop.'

The man (Jimmy Wright) says, "Santa represents frivolous consumption. That's all he is. He shot Jesus right out of the saddle. He's the focus of Christmas."

Be glad you don't live next door to this twerp.

I think the man is partially right in that many people focus on gifts rather than the true meaning of Christmas, which is togetherness and celebrating the birth of Christ. But...poor Santa...what did he ever do to deserve that? Jesus didn't deserve it, neither does Ol' Saint Nick!!
