    Art Conrad has an issue with the commercialism of Christmas, and his protest has gone way beyond just shunning the malls or turning off his television. The Bremerton resident nailed Santa Claus to a 15-foot crucifix in front of his house.
    "Santa has been perverted from who he started out to be," Conrad said. "Now he's the person being used by corporations to get us to buy more stuff."

    If he would have hung santa it would have been a racial thing.

    Interesting way to find your 15 minutes of fame. What's next year, the Easter Bunny or the Tooth Fairy?
