Christmas cheer?

I know there is a tradition of hanging jolly, fat men as ornaments on Christmas trees, but I can't decide whether this offering from the American Chesterton Society is taking things a step too far.


What do you think? Would you hang GKC on your tree? Do you think he would have approved? I suspect he would have found it very amusing, but I'm still not sure I could bring myself to use him as a Christmas ornament. And at $20 plus international postage it is a purely hypothetical question.

I couldn't do it.

Would GKC approve? I think so. Can I hang one on my tree? Umm, no. It is cute though. I'm glad you've found The Blue Boar. I've been meaning to mention that blog to you!
