Savannah, Ga. – A choir of PETA supporters wearing “ugly” Christmas sweaters featuring bloodied stuffed sheep protruding from the front and back will serenade shoppers at the Savannah Christmas Market on Friday, urging them to purchase only vegan clothing and gifts and never buy wool. Audiences will be treated to a delightful concert of classic Christmas carols with a twist—including “Violent Night” and “Rudolph the Vegan Reindeer.”
When: Friday, December 16, 11:45 a.m.
Where: 400 W. River St., Savannah
“Christmas and cruelty don’t mix, which is why sheep’s wool should stay off everyone’s holiday shopping lists,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA encourages everyone to deck their halls and their closets with cozy vegan fabrics and let retailers know that wool belongs only on sheep.”
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to wear”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview.
