Free- "Santa-matic" (freedom of speech).
Posted by Picasa
Because of the changing times even malls have become more politically aware of other religions and cultures especially at holiday time. First it was the addition of a menorrah and now the "Santa-matic!" Now children of all cultures can choose which Santa to meet with at the mall and rest assured their wish is in the right hands! >wink,wink<

Can you imagine how many Clauses would end up being at the mall? Shiver. Unique take on the topic...nicely done.

Tony is right there could be so many clauses...

I love the colourful Clauses here!

Hi Ellen- this is really cute. I can see you're really getting in the holiday spirit already! Enjoy your Turkey day!!

Jaimie said...

Nicely done. I like this idea!

Yes, but can those other Santas promote Coca Cola? ;)

Actually, this is an ingenious (and somewhat devious) answer to the criticism of Santa being a corrupt Western civilisation type invention, but how do these other guys relate to Saint Nicholas? I guess the point really is that Santa is an archetypal figure that belongs to children.

There's a touch of the three wise men here too!

I really enjoyed the costume/character design you've "freely" indulged in here.
