In earlier times the story of the Christmas cat was used to encourage people to get themselves a new garment before Christmas, unless they want to be eaten by the Christmas cat. Still today people find themselves having to buy new garments before Christmas. The meaningful symbols associated with Christmas are so many, that challenging old myths doesn’t seem quite safe to us.
