Rash of Anti-Commercialization Protests

As my brother reported last week about a family who decided to put a giant inflatable Santa holding a bloody, severed head outside their $3 million home, there have been many protests of late about the commercialization of Christmas. This time 40 drunken Santas stormed the streets of Auckland New Zealand, stole from stores, and abused security guards.

Well, at least they weren't covered in blood.

I will say I have to agree with the cause, but a better action could have been used. With all the stores vanquishing the word Christmas from everything, it's not too hard to see where these people are coming from.
