Keeping Christ In Christmas In A Consumer Driven Society: "Shop Until Jesus Smiles"

One of the features of a modern Christmas celebration is the shopping frenzy.  Tis the season to shop, shop, shop.  The phrase shop until you drop has been around for a while.  Many have complained such an attitude leads to a forgetfulness of the center piece of the Christmas season, Christ himself.

With that in mind amid a revival of unmitigated American fundamentalism and the need for a profitable year the National Retail Alliance has produced an ad campaign  designed to aid the bottom line of their members while satisfying the religious requirement of the Christmas season by encouraging shoppers to shop until Jesus smiles.

The representation of Christ in the image above is in the public domain as are the shiny decorations.  I own neither of them, but simply put them to use for this poster.
