The jolly bastard is not what you were told as a kid. We have to expose christmas as the epicenter of american consumer culture, actually it just fuels consumer culture, so does easter, halloween, etc. Thanksgiving is sort of a reject because it focuses on food and family connectivity and not useless items, fashion trends, etc. So, this year lets try to expose the fraud of the holiday season and show others what it is truly all about and how it became what it is today. Instead of going out and buying, stressing over work, money; lets stay home and love, give to others, be kind to our family and neighbors for a change....agreed?
