    On her MSNBC show today, Joy Reid touted a book authored by a writer for Stephen Colbert’s show that depicts Santa as being black and gay, with a white husband. In a revealing moment, Reid said: “the reality is, as crazy as I am, if I can find a husband, Santa can too.” Beyond the gender-bending, Reid also had a purely political message for kids. Apparently, there’s been some controversy over the Black Santa emoji, which some see as appearing sad. Explained Reid: Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS/CNN) — It was a story many wanted to believe: A terminally ill child gets his last wish to see Santa and dies in his arms. But the Tennessee newspaper that ran it first now says it can no longer stand by the account and now there’s conflicting reports as to whether this happened. The Knoxville News Sentinel story quickly went viral after it was published Sunday. USA Today republished the column, which was written by News Sentinel columnist Sam Venable. A host of national news outlets gave it additional coverage, including CNN, who spoke to Santa actor Eric...

    It’s a hard call which is worse: “Bad Santa 2” or its juvenile fans. By any measure, the movie, and its reception in many quarters, is proof positive that American culture is witnessing a race to the bottom. When the first “Bad Santa” was released in 2003, I described Santa as a “chain-smoking, drunken, foul-mouthed, suicidal, sexual predator. He is shown soiling himself in Santa’s chair, vomiting in alleys, having sex with a woman bartender in a car, and performing anal sex on a huge woman in a dressing room.” Nick Schager, writing for The Playlist, notes the “narrative purposelessness”...

    FRESNO, Calif. (TheBlaze/AP) — Authorities say a suspected burglar has died after getting stuck in a chimney in central California. It seems the man climbed into the chimney sometime Friday night while the owner of the home in the rural town of Huron was away — and then the man became stuck, the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office told Reuters. The homeowner heard someone yell inside the chimney after lighting a fire in his fireplace Saturday afternoon and alerted authorities, Lt. Brandon Pursell said. The homeowner tried to put out the fire as his house began to fill with smoke, Pursell...

    I can’t wait to see a friendly WaPo write-up on a Santa who lectures little girls who want Tonka trucks and Transformers about how they can only have toys that adhere to traditional gender roles. Political Santas who frown upon your toy choices are great! Every year, the children ask Santa for dolls, cars, games and puppies. They also ask for guns. Nerf guns, pistols, air rifles, shotguns. Even assault weapons. And that breaks this 82-year-old Santa’s heart, especially this year… “You might get a gun from your father or your mother or grandfather, but you won’t get one from...

    A lay leader of Israel's Christian minority was stabbed to death during an Orthodox Christmas procession by a person dressed as Santa Claus, his church said.

Mr Kadees was stabbed in the back during a parade marking Jesus's birth according to the Eastern church calender, Israeli media said. Last month, Mr Kadees won a third term as the lay leader of the Greek Orthodox community in the town in an election Israeli media says...

    SOUTH STREET SEAPORT — Thousands of drunken Santas terrorized Lower Manhattan when they flooded into the neighborhood for SantaCon earlier this month, openly flouting public drinking and urination laws, locals say. Angry residents attended Community Board 1's Monday night meeting to complain about the latest incarnation of the annual pub crawl, whose participants have been allowed to grow more rowdy every year, they say. "There was public urination, people vomiting all over the place, open containers and no police," said John Fratta, chairman of the Seaport/Civic Center Committee which plans to send an angry missive to Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Police...

According to the government’s press release, this is “the largest such operation ever detected”. Off the record, one official said, "This operation is completely unprecedented in size,...

    Santa Claus has been accused of acting in ways that could "damage millions of lives". As the man in red zooms around the planet delivering gifts, he is an unwitting promoter of obesity, unhealthy products, disease and even drink driving, according to an Australian academic. "Other dangerous activities that Santa could be accused of promoting include speeding, disregard for road rules and extreme sports such as roof surfing and chimney jumping," says Dr Nathan Grills, public health fellow at Monash University's Department of Epidemiology and Preventative Medicine. "Despite the risks of high speed air travel, Santa is never depicted wearing...

    GLSEN, which claims that it wants to protect kids, has chosen to use a fundraising tool that perverts the innocence of Christmas and sexualizes the longtime, child-revered icon of Santa Claus. Yet more evidence revealing the dark side of GLSEN – the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network – has surfaced. (GLSEN was founded by President Obama’s “safe schools czar,” Kevin Jennings.) At issue this time is a GLSEN fundraiser featuring a theatrical play called Santa Claus is Coming Out! GLSEN’s fundraiser invitation says the play depicts “Santa in his heartfelt struggle to reconcile his romantic relationship with Italian toy...
