If you’re unfamiliar with the opening scene from 2005’s Santa’s Slay, GET FAMILIAR. This important piece of American cinema (shot in Alberta, Canada), that opens with a family celebrating Christmas (as portrayed by an all-Jewish cast) is perfect for too many reasons to count. According to the film’s Wikipedia:
Santa was the result of a virgin birth produced by Satan (just as Jesus was the result of a virgin birth produced by God- meaning that Santa is somewhat of an Antichrist). Christmas was “The Day of Slaying” for Santa until, in 1005 AD, an angel defeated Santa in a curling match and sentenced Santa to deliver presents on Christmas for 1000 years. This means that Santa is free to kill again in 2005.
We begin with a hot Kate Spade name-drop, and Fran Drescher in a role she was familiar with at the time — a woman with a gay husband, played by
Mango Chris Kattan. Her real-life ex-husband of 18 years later came out as gay, but don’t worry — Fran is laughing these days! Not only did she beat cancer and write a New York Times Best-Seller, but she’s also dating the CREATOR OF EMAIL. GET IT, HONNAY!
