Which Holiday?

Which Holiday?
Which Holiday?
purchased at a yard sale in Silver Spring, Maryland, December 2012

I found this little critter on a table of used Christmas decorations at a recent yard sale.  The more I look at it, the more I wonder if it really is a Christmas ornament.  It looks like a mouse that’s a cross between a Pilgrim, a leprechaun, and Santa Claus.  That’s three holidays in one!  It’s kind of strange … the face looks like it was transplanted from a human head to a mouse’s body.  And is that an obscene gesture he’s making with his right hand?  It’s like he’s trying to say, “Have a Merry Effing Christmas, Thanksgiving, and St. Patrick’s Day!”  I’m struggling to come up with a name for this guy.  “Pilgrim Leprechaun Santa Claus Mouse” seems a bit long.
