Posted in Christmas Under Attack, Todd's Favorites
Nov 26, 2011
British school children will no longer be allowed to sit on the lap of Santa Claus, according to the National Association of Head Teachers.
The Daily Telegraph reported that volunteer parents who traditionally dress up as Jolly Old Saint Nick have been told that youngsters are not allowed to sit on their laps.
A spokesman for the Department of Education told the newspaper that “Santas in schools should be treated in the same way that other visitors to the school are managed.”
The said that in the current climate – many school leaders are erring on the side of caution.

Better to be safe than sorry. There's no rule that says you have to sit on Santa's lap to tell him what you want for Christmas – is there? Another misleading headline and biased article. Hmm wonder if Todd will somehow ban me from posting opinions on this like he did his page. Since I can't message him – I find it odd Todd (huh that rhymed) you would allow someone who personally attacked a soldier to keep his posts on your page but you block me for sticking up for myself. Censorship is a very tricky thing. You don't have to let me post but you know that when you delete those of us who disagree with you and ban from posting that doesn't stop our differing opinions. Discourse is the spice of life!
Kelly, they do it on youbtube and sometimes Facebook (or inyourFacebook?). It is very frustrating, becuz they are cowards and cannot face negative feedback. They should call: 1-800- Waaaahh.
Do what? Are you talking about the blocking? Yeah well on Starnes FB page he blocked me and I didn't even say anything negative. I just had an opposing view point but yet other people who make horrible comments he leaves? I just don't get some people…
Just at what point does ridiculous step in or is stupid the new norm…People are getting way over the edge…Chris!
Bad timing for the release of this story. Barney Frank announced his retirement today and applied for a job as a department store Santa.
Western civilization has gone completely downhill.
Idiotic. I literally threw Evie onto Santa's lap last year without thinking twice about it. Am I an ignorant parent? I wanted a photo of my baby with Santa at her first Christmas visit to Santa's Grotto. She point blank refused to go near Santa this year, however, so clearly my child has more sense than I do
I thought the thought police had stopped this long ago anyway.
