Reason for the Season??? Furious Parents Attack Santa and his Elves at Lapland New Forest … ‘Winter Blunderland’


File this one under, what the hell is wrong with people? This time the lack of Christmas Santa_laplandfestive cheer occurs in England. It appears that Santa and his elves are not immune to disgruntled “Holiday” cheer in England as a soccer game brawl breaks out at Lapland New Forest. Folks, ya have a right to be angry, you have a right to demand your money back. You have a right to voice your displeasure at what appears to be “Crapland, instead of Lapland” … you do not have a right to assault Santa and his Elves … GEEZ!!! That is correct, disgruntled parents attacked Santa and his elves. Could people possible show some restraint? Just a reminder to the parents that took their children to Lapland New Forest, that is not the reason for the season and neither are your actions and responses to this theme park.

Now the elves have started brawling with the customers.

And Santa himself is nursing a punched nose after a disappointed visitor got tired of queuing in the mud to see him.

Three elves – one a 17-year-old girl – are said to have been involved in violent confrontations.

Santa was punched by a furious father who had been waiting in line for four hours,’ he said. ‘He had got to the front only to be told he couldn’t take a picture of his children and that they weren’t allowed to sit on Santa’s lap.

‘The family were then told they would have to get in another queue to get their presents. That was the final straw.

      Er, guys that came from the Sun newspaper in England. The Sun is not exactly the kind of “news source” one wants to portray as gospel.
      Hence have a laugh (it is very witty) and I am sure that Santa did have a smoke behind the grotto without his beard, but the rest one should put down to “perhaps it was so, perhaps it was not”.
      Pretty similar to Fox news.

      Those elves deserved a beating anyway … this story is just one of those that, if you read it in a novel, you would think it was too preposterous to be real.

      As if anything these days were so….
