I Saw Maman Lynching Santa Claus

Bonnes Fetes, everyone. The hypermarches were packed, but the churches were practically empty here in France the last couple of days;

That, combined with the fact that all the Peres Noel in the village here in Provence are depicted as burglars trying to climb in through the windows--and one Santa is even shown being lynched, possibly as a warning to the others--making me wonder if everyone isn't celebrating Eid instead.

There are more pics in the daddytypes photostream on flickr.
