Those folks at Fox News sure have strange ideas about how to make the Yule time bright – with their never-ending gripes about people saying, “Happy Holidays.” This morning, a professional Santa Claus visited Fox & Friends to discuss his new book about “the true meaning of Christmas.” Apparently, that amounts to saying, “Merry Christmas” and fighting political correctness.
“I like to wish people a Merry Christmas,” Santa, aka Sal Lizard, said. He assured the Curvy Couch Crew he’s “always had pleasant responses.”
Christmas-loving Gretchen Carlson wasted little time playing the spoilsport – all in the name of the Christmas spirit. “What do you make of the political correctness part of our culture?” she asked.
Lizard says that a few years ago, Christmas parties turned into “holiday parties” that no longer wanted a Santa. He also joked that in Australia, Santas have to say, "Ha Ha Ha" in order not to insult women.

Steve Doocy said approvingly, “We know that you love the spirit of Christmas throughout the year.”
Yeah, because nothing says “Joy to the World” like refusing to say, “Happy Holidays!”
