I'm generally easy going. Probably just stirring up my unresolved issues with organized religion. Jesus is awesome, but I'm not a fan of a lot of the people that "follow" him. I think this is an attempt to make sure Christians can be okay with Santa Claus... because he loves baby Jesus too. Why is that annoying to me?

My friend just wrote this and I feel much better now lol



Baby Jesus put his baby hand on top of Santa's head and said, "I shall give you great power and tiny pointy-eared helpers. Your sled and deer shall fly and you will defy time. Go forth my dear one and only give toys to good little boys and girls. For the bad, leave them piles of coal from the deepest pits of hell." 1 Bethlehem 4:1 red letter edition

Santa Claus is based on Saint Nicholas so I wouldn't say he has nothing to do with religion. But anyway I think it's sweet but not something I'd have in my house.

Artistically it is very well done.



It doesn't annoy or offend me. Honestly, the artist probably likes that you're annoyed by it. Art is supposed to make you think.

I think it's cheesy/corny/stupid as f**k.
But other than that it's just a painting of 2 fictional characters.
