    ^If you read it, it says that the Santa Cross was drawn by an American artist and is about the commercialization of Christmas, and its just an urban legend, it wasn`t really shown in the stores.

    Samurai santa should have been number one, but what`s more amusing is it`s clearly not from Japan.

    I can`t believe my crappy Hyundai didn`t make the list. I worked hard tailoring that giant red suit and hat for it.

    I don`t see what the problem is here? It was just different things dressed as Santa Claus.

    Santa is meant to be green for flip sake.

    Red santa is a publicity stunt by Coke.

    Why am I calling him `santa`?! It`s FATHER CHRISTMAS!

    The anime that is from is call The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi or Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu. Just in case you wanted to know. It`s an amazing anime.

    How about the Japs lay off our culture and we`ll slap our confused white teens over here until they stop loving anime. A win win for both sides no?

    For those who don`t read, and therefore this is a pointless gesture, the Santa Cross was a sybolic picture. Not a good one, maybe, but it jst got slapped to the list.

    ^^^What is scary about that is if you look at the cat driectly, you would be able to see a human head in it`s mouth! Ya, Merry Christmas, better not wake up in the middle of the night or you`re next! :-P

    #2 is just a character dressed up like Santa. She`s just a fun character from The melancholy of Haruhi Suzamiya...Like how Spongebob is dressed up like cupid or something for valentine`s day cards

    santa was originally green, coca-cola made him red for advertising, and I don`t think these are "mis interpretations" of what santa is at all. the cat is prob just a character from somthin,they dont actually think santa is a blue cat...
