Knife-wielding Santa running amok in NYC!

One family's protest against the commercialization of Christmas: a gory tableau that would do Tobe Hooper proud!

Joel Krupnik and Mildred Castellanos decked the front of their Manhattan mansion this year with a scene that includes a knife-wielding 5-foot-tall St. Nick and a tree full of decapitated Barbie dolls. Hidden partly behind a tree, a merry old elf grasps a disembodied doll’s head with fake blood streaming from its eye sockets. In a telephone interview Wednesday, Krupnik explained that his family thought it would be a fun way to make a comment about the commercialization and secularization of Christmas.
While I personally think the current 'War on Christmas' coverage is so much bread and circuses nonsense, this is a family holiday that has been way too commercialized. I mean, c'mon - there were Christmas decorations out for sale a couple of days before Halloween in our area! And besides, one can never have too many decapitated Barbie dolls...

Spamming isn't nice, "Horace". Also, make sure your domain is up and running before you spam. Too bad, really - your blog looks like it could be thematically appropriate for a backlink - how about e-mailing the blog owner, Carnacki, instead of spamming? He has his email address in his profile, after all...
