Breaks into your house and leaves you gifts? What about the poor? Meh just focus on the rich. Buy buy buy to prove your worth, that red Coca Cola guy with the tummy girth. Christmas sales in October so please don't be late, let's fight over transformed money idols so we can worship our faith? If Christmas is religious, or perhaps cultural too? Do atheists get gifts, or is this just a human circus or zoo?

Big messages and artworks that are in your face can deliver a strong message, but is it for everyone? What if we could lower the shock factor and make important messages something that visually even a child could view? Although the child might not get the message it may be a gateway for their parents to read further and perhaps plant a conversation seed for the next generation.
