I thought of that possibility too. I believe some version of the jolly old elf does wear green but, considering that they believed that the red suit was invented by Coke, I’m sure that they chose green because...well...shouldn’t everything be “green” these days?
There are places on earth that think Coca-Cola and Hollywood movies dubbed in the local language when thinking about America.
Apologies to Benny Hill...
I had to check and see if this was SCRAPPLEFACE...it ISN’T???!!!! It’s crazy.
Line these teachers up against a wall and whip them for gross stupidity.
I want a 7-UP with a side of MountainDew right NOW!!
According to the website it costs parents seven and a half thousand pounds a year to send their kids to this school. Guess they can do what they like if their customers are happy.
The Left always seems to have a knack for exceeding the threshold of rational believability, don't they?
Next thing you know, they'll be wanting us to give up our cars, drink rat's milk and embrace Islamofascism.!
Oooops...wait a minute........
Since the red parts are the combined presence of the Saint George's Cross and the Saint Patrick's Cross, I have no doubt that the anti-Christian Left, who endlessly bleat about 'tolerance' and 'diversity' have a visceral, seething hate for the flag already on the grounds that it is a 'religious flag' and most likely prefer the EU or UN flags, or a rainbow flag made by authentic homosexuals.
The Saint George's Cross has been a focal point of disdain for the 'tolerance fascists' for some time
Although I of course applaud your sentiments, I have a concern that such a worthy punishment might end up being counterproductive, as such a public spectacle would provide a certain gratification for the numerous teachers there who very likely appreciate 'alternative' sexual habits such as bondage and sadomasochism, as well as those who would be delighted to become a martyr for 'secular tolerance'.
Hopefully, the widespread ridicule that will be heaped upon them all as a result of the publicity surrounding their deconstruction of Christmas traditions will provide an adequate level of shame, and thoughtful parents who had been previously unaware of the leanings of this particular school will rethink any plans to send their children there.
I like red, with white and blue :)
There ya go!
I have long ago written off England as any friend to the US.
It’s a country gone mad , the once proud British now kissing Islamic arses whenever possible. We can’t count on them any more. Soon they will be an Islamic country all together and Santa will be executed.
" The Green Christmas is being staged by Australias major environmental education organisation, Gould formed in 1909
Green Santas media spokesperson Ron Smith today said, Mr Claus realises the move to change to green to promote climate change issues will also bring a range of other changes which will need to be implemented.
This will include the renaming of his famous red nose reindeer Rudolph whose name will be changed to Gary the Green Nose Reindeer and of course will also lead to the rewriting of the famous Christmas carol.
Santas elves traditionally dressed in green will remain the same.
Mr Claus understands this will cause some upset with people who prefer the traditional red Santa costume, however, the climate change threat to the worlds environment required everyone to be involved and show their support for action.
Mr Smith said that the Green Santa is keen to promote environmental messages to people purchasing Christmas gifts "
Oh no , even Christmas is being dragged into the Global warming Fraud
She added: “The red-suited Santa was created as a marketing tool by Coca-Cola, it is a symbol of commercialism.
That’s not what she said. She actually said “The red-suited Santa makes us think of Coca-Cola advertising. We want to go back to the original Saint Nicholaus dressed in green.”
The Daily Mail (the paper that supported Hitler) is printing it’s own version of the “truth” again.
Oh, and green is just as valid as red for Santa. Dickens’ version was dressed in green.
I’m don’t doubt that a newspaper reporter might have their own agenda, but how do you know what she actually said? Please provide a source.
