Ho! Ho! Ho!

Indonesian police have appealed for tolerance and respect for other people's religious celebrations after an Islamist groupthreatened to raid businesses to check for Muslims being forced to wear Santa Claus hats or other Christmas garb.
The hardline Islamic Defenders Front (FPI) said this week it would conduct "sweeping operations" in the world's biggest Muslim-majority country, and that forcing Muslims to wear Christmas attire was a violation of their human rights.
Indonesia is home to several religious minorities, including Christians, Hindus, Buddhists and people who follow traditional beliefs.
Santa hats are evidence of Western commercialism, not Christianity.

"Santa hats are evidence of Western commercialism, not Christianity."

It's all evil to muslims. I very much doubt that they care whether you are an actual Christian or just celebrating Christmas-the-holiday; they'll cheerfully slit the throat of anyone who isn't a muslim. For that matter, they'll slit the throats of other muslims too!

They've been accused of being in love with death, and are proud of that label.
