Christmas Controversy & Opinion Visit Defend Christmas.com Presented by Defend Christmas, this forum covers the difficult topics of the season -- from the famed and fabled War on Christmas to church and state debates to using the star or the angel on the Christmas tree. Modern Christmas celebration has it's complications -- schools are divided, some Christmas light displays are too much, some even argue that it is better to call it a "holiday" tree. Some merchants won't even say "Merry Christmas"! Where there is controversy, there is insanity. Even in Christmas.

Michelangelo’s David Dressed Up as Santa Worries Kids

A Texas homeowner who adorned his front lawn with Michelangelo’s ”David” as a scantily clad Santa got more than just jolly laughs from his neighbors.

I've been to Florence twice, and David was naked both times — the original at the Galleria dell'Accademia and the outdoor replica in the Piazza della Signoria. Florentines are very proud of this 500-year-old avatar of their city.

While they don't dress up David in Florence, they do dress up the 400-year-old Mannekin Pis just off the Grand Place in Brussels, Belgium. In fact, there's a small museum displaying the different costumes people have made for the little boy over the years, including a Santa Claus outfit he wears at Christmastime.
