    umm... what's the big thing about what he says?

    wheather he says hohoh or hahaha, nothing changes about him.... because the whole point of father christmas is to make kids happy on christmas and to give them a feel of what hope is... most adults have already forgotten what hope is or what it feels like...

    besides, father christmas already has hundreds of versions world-wide...

    I think we just need to laugh when people even SUGGEST politically correct bs like this. That we feel we need to make news stories and discussion topics about whether or not this OBVIOUSLY stupid thing is incredibly offensive or not.

    Get a freaking spine, America! And a sense of humor while you're at it!

    Re: Taking things too far

    it will only be offensive if parents seem to think of it in that way. I mean I grew up with Santa saying "ho ho ho" and I didn't realise till in my teens what a hoe actually was. So really to a child, its what Santa says. It was only some stupid people who saw it in the way that would be offensive to women. I am not offend with Santa saying it, so why should they even bother trying to change it? Its probably just one women complaining because she thinks someone is calling her what she really is.
    FAVOURITE THREADS EXPLAIN why, or risk an infraction.

    I know where you are coming from, it is just to much that the censorships are trying to do, I mean come on, where in the world is the right to free speech?
    isn't it a right of all people to say what they want to say?

    its not really a big deal to me, more that its just riddiculous that ppl must actually LOOK for things to nit-pick at, like divine punishment said.
