The War on Santa Claus

With cries of "I don't want to see a fat man dragging a bag behind him when I think of Christmas" there is a movement underfoot to ban images of Santa Claus in the Czech Republic. The goal of this Czech grass roots movement is to maintain the focus on the baby Jesus.

Odd that none of the Czech papers reported it though. Econo-Girl found it in a South African paper. To see the full article, click on the title to this post.

Do the Czechs know that that fat man is good for the retail end of the economy yet?

Silly former commies.

Interesting point. Maybe it's the capitalism that they are resisting.
