Fox & Friends Asks ‘Santa’ For His Thoughts On The ‘War On Christmas’

Fox & Friends hosts Gretchen Carlson and Steve Doocy sat down for an interview with a man in a Santa Clause suit on Thursday and asked him to relate his thoughts on the movement to make holiday traditions more politically correct. As it turns out, Santa Claus had some pointed thoughts on the “war on Christmas.”

Sal Lizard, co-author of Being Santa Clause: What I Learned about the True Meaning of Christmas, sat down for an interview on Fox & Friends to express his fears about the implications of replacing “merry Christmas” with “happy holidays” as the preferred end-of-year salutation.

“I can’t find any reference where Santa has ever said anything other than ‘merry Christmas,’” Lizard said, as a caption under him read “end the ‘war’ on Christmas.”

“What do you make of the political correctness part of our culture,” Carlson asked.

“There was a time a few years back when suddenly I started showing up at Christmas parties and was told they were having holiday parties and, therefore, they didn’t need a Santa anymore,” Lizard said.

He also listed a number of restrictions on Santas recently, including an incident where the Surgeon General had attacked Santa’s diet and checks in England on allowing children to sit on Santa’s lap.
