Just what is "European culture"? Please. Define it. In fact, better yet, go to Germany and ask someone what European culture is. Then go to England and ask the same question. Then Ireland. Then Italy. Then France. Then Spain. Then Norway. Then the Netherlands. And on, and on, and on.
You also still fail to understand the point of the original article, as well as the origins of that fat bearded a-hole you love so much. So here it is, once again:
"Santa Claus" does not equal St. Nicholas. That is a fact. Santa Claus does not exist. Also a fact. Santa Claus is a figure invented to sell product. Fact. He is made up of the mythos from no fewer than six different and unrelated figures, including Saint Nicholas, Father Christmas, Odin and several Germanic gods. Fact. And further, just to get you to really understand...if Santa Claus were based entirely on Saint Nicholas, why don't we celebrate Christmas on December 6th?
The point of the article is this...if a fake figure can be made up of a bunch of different ideas and change drastically over the years, there is absolutely no reason he can't be altered further, other than a purely resentful refusal to change with the times by the conservative "movement" (ironic turn of phrase there, since conservatives refuse to budge).
And further, just to get you to really understand...if Santa Claus were based entirely on Saint Nicholas, why don't we celebrate Christmas on December 6th?
Of course someone as delusional as you would believe and give credence to something as ridiculous as that thought. And Of course you'd be losing sight of the fact that men who are capable with their hands are much more plentiful than men with the foresight and vision. Those are the men who helped guide the creation of this nation that my great grandparents chose to migrate to in the 1890's in an effort for a better chance at success.
Yet all of you leftists continue to turn a blind eye to the undermining of their great achievements; looking instead at White males with disdain instead of realizing that it was the vision ands direction of white males that made this country the most sought after migration destination for 150 years.........
But go ahead and support the "Christmas Penguin" you unemployed swine....
