HO HO HO: A Santa in an Australian department store said on Wednesday he had been sacked for saying “ho ho ho” and singing Christmas songs to children.
Employment company Westaff, which supplies stores with red-robed, white-bearded Father Christmases, had earlier asked its Santas to say “ha ha ha” because the word “ho”, which is American slang for whore, could offend women, media reported.
In the latest incident, the Cairns Post newspaper said 70-year-old John Oakes was sacked on Monday for saying “ho ho ho” and for singing the Christmas song Jingle Bells.
“They’re trying to kill the spirit of Christmas,” said Oakes, a retired entertainer who has been a Santa for three years.
