WHERE IS BUDDY FROM ELF WHEN YOU NEED HIM?
The war on Christmas has started early this year, just as early as stores rid themselves of Halloween displays. The Roosevelt Field Mall in Long Island, NY has ditched its traditional holiday village and put Ol’ Saint Nick inside a winter-themed “glacier” instead. And why did they do this? To avoid offending people, of course. Do these morons realize they are offending people by sanitizing Christmas? The mall charges anywhere from $24.99 to $59.99 for pictures with Santa who is sitting in front of an all-white background. Wait, isn’t that racist? Why is it black or inclusive of all colors? (sarcasm intended) There is no Christmas tree, no presents, no elves, no nothing!!! So now the secular commercialization of Christmas with Santa Claus is offensive. When will the absurdity end? Frankly, people should just do their Christmas shopping elsewhere is this mall is so offended by Christmas. Why is Santa even dressed in a red coat and hat? Just have the children take a picture next to some dude names Stan wearing khaki’s and a sweater.
Honestly, people need to boycott and not shop at places like this to show them the stupidity of their ways. In is simply ridiculous that less than 1% of people complaining that something is offensive would ruin in for so many children.
I guess people find the movie Elf offensive too
A Long Island mall swapped Santa’s sleigh for something resembling a spaceship and nixed the Christmas tree because it didn’t want to “offend” anyone, irate shoppers told The Post.
The Roosevelt Field Mall ditched its traditional holiday village and put Ol’ Saint Nick inside a winter-themed “glacier” instead. But some say the white and blue display looks more like something out of “Star Trek” than “Twas the Night Before Christmas.”
“Santa comes along with a decorated tree; he doesn’t come with a spaceship,” Maria Lovdahl fumed.
The Williston Park mother of two was shopping Thursday night when she spotted the apparently futuristic Santa photo kiosk.
“Me and my husband looked at each other and said, ‘What is that?’?” Lovdahl recalled. “They said it was because people were offended by the traditional Christmas display, that they had gotten comments in prior years.”
After a lifetime of shopping at Roosevelt Field and bringing her kids there, Lovdahl said, “I won’t be shopping there this year.”
Betty Borrero, 32, heard so much about the new display she came to see it for herself.
“I bring my child, I want to see the big tree in the background. This is blank,” she said, noting she’ll take her kid to Macy’s for this year’s holiday pictures.
In an update from Legal Insurrection, it appears that the Mall has somewhat relented on their stupid premise and they have put back the Christmas trees. Although, I can pretty much guarantee they call them festival trees.
So much for Santa Claus using the chimney to deliver presents when he can use the front door to rob a bank …
The Orlando Sentinel is reporting that a man wearing a Santa hat, beard and long white wig walked into the Volusia County SunTrust Bank in Port Orange, Florida with a wrapped package and demanded money telling the bank teller that the package was dangerous. So what happens when Santa makes his own naughty list? The bad, robber Santa was described as about 6 feet tall and in his 30s or early 40′s. The bank was later evacuated; however the package was found to be harmless. The incident took place on December 23, 2013.

The man, wearing a Santa hat, beard and long white wig walked into the bank in Port Orange about 3:15 p.m., two days before Christmas, with a package wrapped in red patterned holiday wrap, a picture released by police shows.
The robber placed the box on the counter in front of a teller, implied that the package was dangerous and demanded money, said Lt. John Jakovenko, a police spokesman. He did not have a weapon.
The fake Santa, who also wore sunglasses, walked out with an undetermined amount of cash and left the package behind.
Move over Philly Eagle fans, you have nothing with throwing snow balls at Santa, DC just trumped you and shot Santa with a pellet gun.
As reported at WUSA-9, (VIDEO)Santa Claus suit was shot with a pellet gun Tuesday morning at a toy giveaway in Southeast Washington, DC at the 22nd annual Barry Farm toy drive. Good grief, who knew Santa did not need Rudolph and his shiny red nose leading the way through the snow and fog, but instead a bullet proof Kevlar vest? Santa was shot in the shoulder and was sent off to the hospital in an ambulance, rather than his sleigh. Amazingly enough, the shooting got caught live on video as WJLA was interviewing Santa at the time.
Honestly, what the hell is this world coming to when Santa has to worry about being shot? You can rest assured, the punk who did this was put on Santa’s permanent naught list. Making matters even worse in the story is that police were called to the scene, but could not really do anything because they could not enter any homes to find the punk(s) responsible because they had no search warrants.
