    Abstract

    In what ways has the iconography and practice of Christmas been shaped, understood and consumed as an American experience? This chapter explores explains and questions the ideological valence of Christmas in part as an American socio-economic and cultural (export) practice. It looks at issues of consumption, representation of Christmas in print media, and at aspects of resistance to that festival culture.
