Christmas commercialism early

I’m an odd one: when people mention St. Nicholas I first think of the defender of the faith with the feast on December 6.

It seems, his hometown has gone Coca-Commercial, and has moved their main square “religious” statue in lieu of one more fitting for a greeting card. The Germans like it; the Russians are horrified.

I’m with the Russians on this one.
