Santa Claus “HO-HO-HO” Offensive??? Some People Really Need to Get a Life



Can children please still be allowed to have a childhood! So now its no longer a war on “Christ”mas in the religious sense, but instead a war Santa_Ron Santa Claus in an ignorant one. Santa Claus no longer allowed to say, “HO-HO-HO” because some narrow minded fools think that children will get confused because its too close to the slang connotation foe whore.  Are you joking?  

Santas in Australia’s largest city have been told not to use Father Christmas’s traditional “ho ho ho” greeting because it may be offensive to women, it was reported Thursday.

Sydney’s Santa Clauses have instead been instructed to say “ha ha ha” instead, the Daily Telegraph reported.

One disgruntled Santa told the newspaper a recruitment firm warned him not to use “ho ho ho” because it could frighten children and was too close to “ho”, a US slang term for prostitute.

Some people need to get their head out of the gutter and let children be children. There are so many more things out there that can be done to protect children than worrying about what Santa says. Maybe you can start by screening potential Santa’s for sexual predators.

“Gimme a break,” said Julie Gale, who runs the campaign against sexualising children called Kids Free 2B Kids.

“We are talking about little kids who do not understand that “ho, ho, ho” has any other connotation and nor should they,” she told the Telegraph.

“Leave Santa alone.”

      How rediculous!

      Are they going to let a few low-life rappers who think that women are b!tches and hos ruin Christmas for everyone else. What kind of message are we sending to the kids? A new definition for a word for bad women that is way beyond their years, if they still believe in Santa; as opposed to a word that is used to express joy? Kids grow up fast enough without making a big deal out of what is perceived as a dirty word that most kids, unless they’re entertainment is not monitored, know nothing about anyway. The words been around a long time, why now? A little obsessed with sex, are we? Besides, it’s not the only word with two meanings.

      Let Santa say whatever he wants and get the minds of our children OUT of the gutter.

      Some adults need to grow up.

      I’m more offended by people who are so bored they are always sitting around trying to come up with more ridiculous bs. They probably want to ban Ho Ho’s and Ho Ho cake also. How many women when they hear Santa say HO Ho HO , have thought they were being called a bad name. Give me a break. Like I said, next they will be trying to take Hell out of Hello.

    3. Miss-Underestimated on November 16th, 2007 4:23 pm

      So what can Santa say, he can’t say Merry Christmas either?

      Maybe he can just give everybody the California Helloooo.

      Patti, maybe they always got their minds in the gutter?

      Banning HO HO HO?

      Geez-o-petes that’s outta control stupid.

      Today, Santa Claus…

      Tomorrow the Jolly Green Giant,

      Next week, a gardening tool!

      The insanity of it all, when does the

      madness stop?

      Some people have way too much time on their hands … and no brains in their head.

      Secularists are on offense. Those of us that hold tradition in the highest regard are constantly on defense. Defending the things that make America a great free land – where anyone can choose to whatever makes them happy as long as it doesn’t harm anyone else.

      I think we need to go after the things they hold near and dear – like atheism. Just constantly say our God is better than their non-deity. LOL

      In fact a bowl of ravioli is better than their non-deity.

    7. EURobert on November 17th, 2007 7:06 am

      Yes, traditions…

      The Dutch version of Santa Claus is ‘Sinter-Klaas’ who is accompanied by so called ‘Zwarte Pieten’ (Black Pete’s – who go back to pagan times). &

      But the last couple of years people – with African and Islamic roots – felt offended, both by the “Christian” Sinterklaas and the “Black” Pete’s; so several Sinter-Klaases and Pete’s have been beaten up by immigrants recently.

      So last year we had “Rainbow Pete’s” (Pete’s of different colors) to take away something of the offense…

      But this year we’ve stepped away from that because the children didn’t understand the rainbow-pete-concept… Now we’re back at Black Pete’s…

      The only answer probably is that people shouldn’t get so easily offended.

      First off, I’d like to start off by saying our world is becoming too much like a whole lot of people with a stick up their asses! Having worked 9 years in an elementary school, I’ve seen and heard it all! This is ridiculous! First, you can’t even mention Christmas in school (oh, it’s “winter solstice”!) because you might offend whoever and now Santa is supposed to say , “Ha, Ha, Ha”?! Oh please! We are taking the innocence out of our youth by even pointing attention at what some people THINK could be construed as negative connotation to who?! An innocent child?! “Oh, Santa, did you just call me a hoe?!” C’mon! Santa has been saying, “Ho, Ho, Ho” for centuries! It’s a tradition and Santa would just not be Santa without his, “ho, ho, ho!” Argh! In the school I worked at, even five year old girls could not wear spaghetti strap tank tops in the hot weather!!! They had to be two fingers wide! What are these people that make all of these rules on our innocent children really telling them? In a way, they’re saying our children are sexual beings. I mean, think about the age of children that believe in Santa Claus, you know?! They don’t know what a “hoe” is. Say “ho, ho, ho” to any young child and ask them to tell you what it reminds them of. Chances are high, they will say Santa Claus…. Not, “Um, a dirty rotten prostitute walking down the street?” Ugh, I’ll step off my soap box. I’m just really irritated. Why not just live and let live???? AND get a life!

      Next you won’t be able to sing “White Christmas” because it is a racial term.

      Santas are no longer allowed to use the traditional HO HO HO greeting in Sydney, Australia. This has inspired a new tune called Santa Lost his Ho in Sydney. You can sample it via this link, if you wish:

      For those who have never heard of me (that’s most of you), I’m also the guy who wrote this internet hit:

      You’re Not the Kinda Ho (That Santa had in Mind)

      Santa Lost His Ho in Sydney

      Words and music by Dr BLT copyright 2007

      Santa lost his ho in Sydney

      Santa must say

      “He, he he!” this year

      Some feminazi’s didn’t like his greeting

      Now Santa Claus

      Has lost his ho ho cheer


      What is Christmas without Santa’s ho ho

      Might as well take Rudolf away

      Santa lost his ho ho

      In Sydney

      Might as well have

      Stolen Santa’s sleigh

      Santa lost his ho in Sydney

      And with his ho, his will to carry on

      Santa lost his ho in Sydney

      And I’ve just gained

      A brand new Christmas song

      You don’t take Batman’s cape

      No, and for goodness sake, well

      And you don’t melt a snowman’s snow

      You don’t cut Samson’s hair

      No you only let it grow

      And you just don’t take

      Santa’s ho

      Santa lost his ho in Sydney

      So let’s all make sure, he gets his ho back

      And let’s all have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

      Ho Ho Ho!

      This is so stupid!! Santa Claus is the best guy in the world and he is still treated like crap even around Christmas Time!!

    16. Victoria on December 12th, 2007 12:23 pm

      Santa Claus should still be able to say ho ho ho even if it offending SOME women! It isn’t offending me or any of my friends!! Not all women are offended by it! Anyway, he still should be able to say ho ho ho instead of that stupid idea of ha ha ha! P.S. KEEP SANTA FAT!!!!!!

    17. ron on March 12th, 2008 9:46 pm

      well have you ever thought of the ficticious character called santa laughing ho ho ho where he was used to cover up the murder of Jesus Christ in the attempt to decieve the world into thinking that DNA is actually in our genes…well get ready thats whats happening and when you read “the sin and the paradox” you wil see in the observable world that we all have been used as fools and laughing all the way to our unnecessary graves…think about it!!!

    18. ronald Odell on December 21st, 2010 12:11 pm

      People need to get there minds out of the gutter, and get back the morals of good people, and leave the Holidays the Hell alone

    19. Enlightened on December 25th, 2010 9:09 am

      First let me ask: How many of you know the exact meaning of “CHRISTMAS”? Christmas is from two words: “Christ” meaning “Jesus” and “MASS” as per Roman Catholic Doctrine and old english “the Death sacrifice”.
      Thus, Merry Christmas becomes “Joy and be happy over the death sacrifice of Jesus”

      So whats this all about….. you guys are celebrating the Birth or the death.

      and by the way… Ho Ho Ho is offensive as the attackers of the JESUS, enjoyed by shoutingh HO HO HO!!!!

      Be Enlighten…. about the Religion!
      SM: Nothing you can do to be miserable on this day will alter the beauty, hope and love of this blessed day. If you are asking the above questions, you know nothing of the birth of Christ.

      “For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”
      –Isaiah 9:6

      Merry Chritsmas to all … R
