Why are we changing Santa?

Santa has always been known to be a jolly plump fellow who had the line of "ho ho ho"

and now,

they want to make Santa trim and say "ha ha ha" because "ho ho ho" is affending to women because it refers to the word *hoe*

do you think this is right to change a tradition that has been carried on for many,many years bringing joy to so many peoples faces

    I've heard talk about people making Santa thin, as well, because he is sending a bad message to children about healthy eating. While it is not for the same reasons I still think it is stupid. I can't say that I've ever heard someone being offended by Santa or a child using the excuse that it's alright to eat all the cookies they want because Santa can. We are becoming way to obsessed with political correctness. In the schools around me they don't even do the traditional Thanksgiving celebrations that they use to because of all the stuff that happened between the Indians and Pilgrims. Kids can't even bring in treats for their birthdays just in case one of the kids in the class can't eat them, when I was in elementary school (which was only a few years ago) if you couldn't eat the treat you sucked it up and moved on with your life. It makes you wonder where we're headed to next.

    No I do not think it is right to change this tradition. People should know that Santa saying ho ho ho is only a laugh nothing more. Some people are getting carried away with trying to be PC.

    people know that ho ho ho is his form of laughing, they should get over it

    that is all a gaggle of propaganda. there is as lots (if not extra) outcry touching directly to the proposed alterations as there is touching directly to the "ho, ho, ho" or the "fat" Santa. i don't assume that we are going to ever see those alterations made. each physique loves Santa as he's.

    i haven't heard of this changing. anyways i think it's wrong. just because out new lingo is retarded doesn't mean we should change tradition.

    hoe in regards to offensive term is actually slang.... people haev got to stop being so ghetto.

    That is absolute nonsense! I'm female and I'm not offended by that. Any reasonable woman wouldn't be offended.

    Because we are becoming so "open minded" and PC our brains are falling OUT!
