>It's time to give St. Nick his long overdue makover>St. Nick
If you're going to acknowledge the historic figure Santa Claus is based on, then changinge his race or gender would be denying history.
But I don't get why America is so insistant on also calling Santa Claus "Kris Cringle" and "Saint Nick" in order to merge him with Christmas figures of other contries. Can't they say just that those are two separate people from Santa Claus that deliver presents to countries he doesn't? That's what I believed as a kid!
