Apparently, the Czechs have something of a "war on Santa" going on! I guess he's viewed as an unwanted symbol of mindless U.S. consumerism, and in some of the images on this Czech "Anti-Santa" website Santa is compared with Mao Zedong. So Santa must be seen as totalitarian as well-

And at last... Santa Christ!

And the Czech take on America's worldview... priceless!

That's how it's done. lol

The same symbolism of the old man last year and the new kid new year, we use around ball drop time, is at play here.
A long time ago Kronos was believed to control time or whatever (krono - chronology (Saturn)) white beard and sickle divided into father time and Death or Mortem. same thing as Zeus father of Hercules vs Hera and God father of Jesus vs Devil (Jesus = Hey Zeus lol) Santa is a combination of many of these old mythological attributes.Santa - Saturn - Satan- Santana etc Venus and the Moon were Diana and Lucy, our Saturday and Sunday are Saturns day and Suns dat etc
Kronos - Zeus - Jesus - are all 'old guy last year' symbolism just with a longer cycle to symbolize. It makes sense that now, during the eve of this 'Big' New Year, they introduce another little kid symbol. The sheep will meet their god for the next 2000 years! I wonder what the new bad guy will be like.
This is an evolution. Thanks for posting. It is hilarious.

With all this "War on Christmas" nonsense & the tug-of-war between religious and purely secular Christmas traditions, it has been joked about that Santa & Christ should just be fused :)

It turns out that the (now) very secular Czech Republic has the tradition of a gift-giving figure who is a sort of Santa/Christ hybrid- Jezisek (translates to "Baby Jesus"):

Jezisek sneaks through the window instead of down the chimney, and traditionally had no image attached, although nowadays he is often portrayed similar to the above.
