Santa Died for Your Sins

Anne reported that when she was in Japan years ago found a store selling icons of Santa Claus nailed to a cross. According to local legend, the first Santa-on-a-cross was made years ago by a confused Japanese designer. I suspect it was actually a very clever business move: they've been selling well ever since the "mistake" was first marketed.

The only mystery about Santa-on-a-cross is why they've never been exported. I think they'd be very popular over here.
