"Ha, ha, ha....Happy Holidays!"

SYDNEY (AFP) - Santas in Australia's largest city have been told not to use Father Christmas's traditional "ho ho ho" greeting because it may be offensive to women, it was reported Thursday.

Sydney's Santa Clauses have instead been instructed to say "ha ha ha" instead, the Daily Telegraph reported.

One disgruntled Santa told the newspaper a recruitment firm warned him not to use "ho ho ho" because it could frighten children and was too close to "ho", a US slang term for prostitute.

Leave Christmas alone!



And quit fabricating offenses!

I can't say it any better than you did - leave Christmas alone! And no skinny Santas, either, as I've seen on tv. That's just not right.

Talk about needing a politically correct issue to harp on. This is completely absurd!!

I want to cry for the children every time I hear these stories on how grown ups want to take the joys of Christmas away from the children.

The butt-for-brains liberals and atheists won't be satisfied until we are one big milquetoast, believe in nothing and say nothing to offend world. They can take their xmas celebration along with banning ho-ho-ho and stick it where the sun don't shine.

Merry Christmas to all and to all a goodnight!

You know if I were a woman I would be offended by the thought that the powers that be think that the word , "Ho, " would offend me!
