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).

Within the borough unemployment rates among people with longer-term mental health problems increased steadily during the 1990s, despite a decreasing rate of general unemployment for the majority of that period. Unemployment among people with long-term mental health problems increased from 80% in 1990 to 92% in 1999, and the unemployment rates among those with a diagnosis of schizophrenia increased from 88% in 1990 to 96% in 1999.
