I'd say he's got his finger on the pulse of the Holiday...

Walter Russell Meade:
Christmas has been a contentious holiday at least since then. St. Francis introduced the manger scene hoping that it would draw attention away from gift giving and secular celebrations to the religious meaning of the season. This does not seem to have worked very well; the last time I checked, the score at the mall seemed to be Santa Claus ten million, St. Francis zip.
