There are two central figures that represent Christmas, Santa Claus and the baby Jesus. Both have been identity theft victims, at least in the movies. so since it is the holiday season, I thought I would focus on those movies and lighten things up. Two of these movies are perfect for family viewing and many of you may have already watched them this year.
How the Grinch Stole Christmas
We all remember Dr Suess’ classic book. The Grinch is a well known holiday classic, and I really prefer my Grinch animated with Boris Karloff reading the story. The Grinch had a nefarious plan that hinged on stealing Santa’s identity so that he could steal all the Christmas cheer from Whoville.
The Nightmare Before Christmas
All Jack really wanted was a little love. Seeing how well loved Santa was, Jack decided to take his place. Eventually Jack learned that he was loved too for different reasons.
The Life of Brian
This one is strictly for the adults and some people may find it a bit offensive but after all it is Monty Python. Poor Brian comes into the world mistaken for the Messiah. To Brian’s credit he did spend his life trying to convince people that he was not the Messiah.
These three movies just go to prove one thing, no one is safe from identity theft.
