Christmas gifts to make a holy show of
By Dan Buckley
LOOKING for the perfect seasonal gift to impress your parish
priest, or convince your friends you have finally lost it? Well,
hallelujah, your search is over, thanks to strange new religious
gifts available on the internet.
They include the Happy Birthday Jesus Tree Topper, a bearded
doll to replace the traditional fairy at the top of the Christmas
tree. According to its makers, it "lights up when plugged
in and has nail prints in both hands".
Or how about The Brick Testament a holy trinity made up of Lego
figures? You could always choose a nodding Virgin Mary doll and
a mobile phone cover featuring a glowing crucifix. They top a
list of bizarre religious gifts compiled by the satirical Christian
website Ship of Fools...
