The Santa Epidemic
Europe seems to have fallen victim to the “Santa Epidemic” and by that I mean… both last year (I was in Europe during Christmas time in 2009) and this year there were millions of people who chose to decorate their apartments with this heinous item:
That’s right. It’s a santa doll climbing into a window from a rope ladder.
Factually, it’s all wrong. Don’t these people know that Santa comes down the CHIMNEY? More importantly, where are the reindeer?
Beyond that, I find it tacky and comparable to the U.S. trend of blow-up snowmen. Apologies to any reader who has one on their lawn. But I’m being honest…those are really ugly, you should re-evaluate. Can I get some garland? Simple white twinkle lights?
The one upside to this is that if you’re ever really bored, you can count Santas. The number is obscene. I participated in this past time last winter, and I was appalled by the number.
