CAMPAIGNERS SAY ITS NOT CHRISTMAS UNLESS SANTA HAS A REAL BEARD
The Campaign for Real Santas, which promotes Santas with genuine organic beards, has said that with three shopping weekends left until Christmas those seeking the essence of the annual festival must seek out a Santa with a genuine beard.
The Campaigners say that with unemployment and under employment amongst mature men over 50, there is absolutely no reason for anyone to use an assistant Santa who does not have a real beard.
In America many Santas do have genuine beards including the man dubbed the ‘first’ black Santa, Larry Jefferson.
The Campaign is also keen to encourage more female Santas with organic knitted beards.
Campaigners are urging parents and children to vigorously tug the beards of Santas they encounter as a definitive test as to whether they are in the presence of a real Santa or not.
CFRS organiser Keith Flett said, let’s face it. Santa does not have an absurd fake beard made of cotton wool and glued on to his face. Santa has a real beard and that is one of the fundamentals of Christmas
The shortlist for Organic Santa 2016 is revealed on 10th December
THREE STEPS TO SPOT A GENUINE SANTA
1 Tug the beard of the Santa. If it comes away, then the Santa is FAKE
2 Tug the beard of the Santa again. If the Santa swears then they are genuine. If they simply repeat a ‘ho ho ho’ mantra they are FAKE
3 The Campaign for Real Santas says that genuine Santas must have just the right mix of bonhomie and grumpiness and a real organic beard.
The Organic Santa of 2016 will be named on December 18th
