I heard a story once about a town who is literily replacing Santa with Elvis. Instead the children are expecting a pink cadilac being pulled by 8 tiny hounddogs, dressed in one of his fancy 70's concert outfits. The kids are leaving peanutbutter & banana sandwiches out for him.
Theres even department store Elvises, and he hands his Christmas CDs and candycanes to every kid. All around the store you hear, "Whad u want for Christmas, lil' mama," (or "lil' buddy)
that wouldnt be a bad replacement but ..i dunno.
