so this is christmas
the three santa heads here are classics- i'm sure you've had an ornament or toy made from the same design, sculpt, mold
some of my earliest christmas memories center on pieces of plastic- some handed-down piece of the commercialized yule that is so nothing new it's really ridiculous to criticize it- nobody alive experienced a currier and ives christmas- the ol timey christmases i idealized in my memory probably came from the little house on a prairie christmas special or some other tv show
i like to incorporate the tacky into the holiday -it's all we've ever known, so why resist it? what else is there?
