In order not to offend anyone, mall does this to its Santa


Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus, but children looking forward to sitting on the jolly elf’s knee this holiday season at the Roosevelt Field Mall on Long Island will have to find him first.

It won’t be easy. They won’t get any help by looking out for the usual telltale signs. There will be no holiday village, no sleigh with eight tiny reindeer, no Santa’s workshop.

Instead, old Saint Nick (and don’t you dare call him that!) will be housed inside an antiseptic-looking white shell that is supposed to resemble a “glacier.”

The reason for taking Santa out of his natural cheery habitat and placing him on a sterile ice floe is to avoid giving offense to grinches, atheists, and other haters of Christmas.
