London photo: bizarre fake Christmas tree ritual


Whether Santa is toasting these strangely misshapen plastic evergreens or they are bowing down in supplication before him, something unusual and rather upsetting is happening here. I fear Day of the Triffids has gone festive. (In Leicester Square.)

Speaking as a Finn, the whole idea of Santa toasting anything with a Coke feels kind of strange to me (Santa is from Lappland, and NOT from Greenland or any such place, no matter what anyone says!!). But then again, I do believe this whole jolly “ho ho ho” figure clad in red is originally Coke’s invention…

Santa is from the North Pole!
