How do you know Santa Claus has to be a man?
Santa Claus received a parking ticket from a Brooklyn jobsworth.
Word has reached Will and Guy that a New York parking official has penalised Santa Claus for a parking offence while delivering his presents to needy children. Father Christmas [aka Chip Cafiero, a retired schoolteacher] received the $115 USD ticket in Brooklyn. Apparently he shouted to the official, 'Ho! Ho! Ho!' but he was completely ignored.
Santa claims that his horse-drawn carriage and a SUV carrying the toys was not causing an obstruction. We are not able to raise a comment from the police but a local politician has said the parking ticket is 'ridiculous.'
Canada: Father Christmas has his own personal zip code; it is the alphanumeric number: H0H 0H0. (Ho-Ho-Ho) In this way people who write to Santa know that their letter will arrive safely. It has been his personal code since 1982 and Will and Guy have learned that this address receives some 1 million letters from all over the world each year.
While working in a store as Santa Claus, I had lots of boys ask me for an electric train set. "If you get your train," I would tell each one, "you know your dad is going to want to play with it too. Is that okay?"
The usual answer was a quick yes, but after I asked one boy this question, he became very quiet. Trying to move the conversation along, I asked what else he would like Santa to bring him.
He promptly replied, "Another train."
Yes There Is A Santa Claus
If you want the great gift giver
As a boy of about five, I was taken into the big city to meet with Father Christmas. He had his elf grotto in the big department store. My mother and I had to queue, but eventually I reached Father Christmas and he asked me, 'Guy what would you like for Christmas?' I dumbfounded, then I surprised my Mother by saying: 'Nothing'.
While it is true that the name Santa Claus was an American 'invention' sometime before 1870. The original name for the 'figure' associated with the mid-winter festival was Saint Nicholas, or St. Nick. Other languages have variations or translations of Saint Nicolas, for example, Père No�l, Papa Noel, Babbo Natale, Papai Noel, Father Christmas, and Kris Kringle.
A popular urban myth is that back in 1928 Coca Cola invented Santa Claus. What fuels this myth is that his red coat matches perfectly the Coca Cola livery.
The truth is that while early Santa Claus often wore green, Santa Claus in red was established by the 1860s, long before Coca Cola was invented.
A Santa Claus is facing the sack from a Dutch shopping centre after he smacked a young boy for pulling his beard.
Peter Hendriks hit the boy on the backside in front of dozens of shoppers in the town of Rijswijk. Defending his actions, he said: 'If I hadn't done that, he would have pulled off my beard and dozens of children would have been traumatised.'
Sketch of Santa's Footprint
The move in Vienna has been followed by Christmas markets across Austria and Germany where St Nicholas is the traditional bearer of Christmas gifts. Bettina Schade, from the Frankfurter Nicholas Initiative in Germany commented, 'We object to the material things, the hectic rush to buy gifts, and the ubiquity of the bearded man in the red suit that are taking away from the core meaning of Christmas.
A Vienna city hall spokesman added that Santa Claus is an English language creation, people who want to see him should go to America where I am sure Coca Cola will be happy to oblige. 'The Christian origins of Christmas, like the birth of Jesus, have receded into the background. It's becoming more and more a festival that is reduced to simply worldly gifts and commerce.'
Footnote: In Europe, New Year seems to be more important than Christmas.
