Cartoon of a gardener seeing Santa’s reindeer eating his brussels sprouts

A cartoon about Santa Claus’s reindeer, Father Christmas delivering Christmas presents.
Part of the joke is that although Santa’s reindeer is on an extraordinary mission (delivering Christmas presents around the world) it is engaged in a mundane activity. It is the mundane activity that the man notices, rather than the extraordinary occurrence of Santa’s reindeer in his garden. He is obviously more concerned about his garden vegetables than he is interested in the magic of Christmas

Christmas cartoon. Which to choose: Santa’s grotto or Satan’s grotto?

Cartoon showing a child standing between two grottos offering presents. One is Santa’s grotto and one is Satan’s. Both are tempting the child with the offer of presents and material gifts. Maybe Satan’s gifts are less wholesome.
This cartoon isn’t meant to be particularly profound or meaningful in any religious way by the way (as I’m an atheist). It’s just a simple observation about temptation and the fact that Santa and Satan are anagrams of each other.
