Don’t get me wrong. I love a little HO HO HO as much as the next gal but some of the decorations and traditions surrounding Christmas are just plain creepy.
For example, this is a picture of the baby Jesus in our town’s nativity scene.
What the hell? The hair? Those outstretched arms. The seams! Is baby Jesus a blow up doll?
Oh and it doesn’t match the three wise men or Mary or anything else either.
So I am not sure. Did someone in days of yore steal the baby Jesus that matched the wise men and other “figures” and this was the cheap ghetto creepy ass replacement? I do not know. I just know that I have had nightmares about that thing.
Other things that have the potential for nightmares, ELF ON THE SHELF! The backstory, the Elf on the Shelf is Santa’s spy sitting in the house watching the children to know if they have been naughty or nice. there’s nothing creepy about Stalking at all, even if it is cute little elves.
AnD LOOK AT IT! That’s a “I will burn your house down while you sleep” expression if I ever saw one.
