Santas plunged into civil war

Rival Santa Claus leaders have been engaged in a decidedly unfestive power struggle that has polarised the lucrative US grotto market and forced hundreds of Father Christmases to choose between warring rival groups.

The hostilities have spilled on to the internet, in this case Elf Net, an online chat group where Santas go to exchange information on belt supplies and beard dyeing.

Organisers of the annual convention in Kansas of the Amalgamated Order of Real-Bearded Santas, fear it will be disrupted by splitters from rival groups such as the Fraternal Order and the Red Suit Society.

In turn, Mr Connaghan’s new group, the Red Suit Society, has accused the Amalgamated Santas of a “vindictive and persecutory” attitude towards members, and “engaging in Un-Santa like dialogue”.

Is this really how you think of Xmas?.

Thanks, Helen

    The Red Suit Society has been in existance for decades. Mr. Trolli has proven himself to be untrustworthy and definitely untruthful in the past. Many of us who were his supporters feel he has a pathalogical obsession with control. If youl’d like to discuss this matter in more open detail, e-mail me at santa@thenorthpoletoday.com

    (Oct. 13, 2017) Trump launches early salvo in the purported war on Christmas http://www.latimes.com/politics/washington/la-na-pol-essential-washington-updates-trump-issues-early-defense-in-the-war-1507907831-htmlstory.html Speaking Friday at the Values Voter Summit in Washington, D.C., the president thundered, “We’re getting near that beautiful Christmas season that people don’t talk about anymore. They don’t use the word Christmas because it’s not politically correct. You go to department stores and they’ll say ‘Happy New Year’ . . . . Well, guess what? We’re saying ‘Merry Christmas’ again.”
