Have a Star-Spangled Christmas!
Apparently the advertiser and
manufacturer missed a meeting; the one where they might have learned:
a) Christmas is celebrated in many countries besides the United States.
c) Saint Nicholas, from Patara, in present-day Turkey.
|In short, neither Santa Claus nor Christmas are exclusively American.|
So why is Santa dressed like
Uncle Sam, holding a U.S. Flag,
"showing off his red, white and blue pride?"
