Show Santa Claus some respect by highlighting the proliferation of Crappy Santas
You’ve all seen them. Sitting on trees. Decorating houses. And filling shelves throughout the retail environment. Sad representational effigies of that secular symbol of the holiday season, good ol’ Santa Claus.
They’re not pretty. They can easily change your happy holiday spirit into one of gloom and disgust. And something tells me that the folks who come up with them aren’t going to be getting anything but coal in their stockings.
Every year, stores around the world become littered with crappy santas. Big corporations pump this crap out with little to no regard for santa-standards. Beard length, hat placement, belly size, and suit hue are all standards that must be enforced. If we’re able collect 1,000 crappy santas by Christmas Eve the International Toy Federation will have no choice but to recall all these half-assed santas.
Here’s hoping that, through all of our efforts, we can make the holidays a little brighter. And set some standards for Santa production.
