Incline Village, Nevada (PRWEB) June 21, 2005
A United Catholic Church priest and monk in the Order of Anam Cara has legally changed his name to Santa Claus. He lives at Lake Tahoe and has the requisite twinkle in his eyes, spirit of giving, naturally white beard, belly, glasses, red suspenders, and now the official name: Santa Claus.
Even the U.S. Transportation Security Administration is satisfied that this Santa Claus is who he says he is. His passport and driverÂs license and social security and Screen Actors Guild cards are issued to Santa Claus.
Unlike SantaÂs helpers, this genuine Santa publishes his ÂNaughty and Nice Top TenÂ lists on his website, updated weekly and geared to parents.
Currently, Santa is addressing the issue of obesity in America and setting a good example for children by losing a little weight, eating healthier foods than before, and exercising moderately. Santa notes that St. Nicholas, upon whom many believe the spirit of Santa Claus is based, was a thin fellow.
ÂThe Santa Diet,Â a complete diet for physical, emotional, and spiritual health, is slated for publication late this summer. SantaÂs new advice column, Santa Says, will be available this fall.
Santa reminds us that, for many centuries, people have celebrated the Feast of St. Nicholas on December 6th and Christmas on December 25th. When the Dutch settled New York, they managed to combine both celebrations.
Being a priest and a monk, just as St. Nicholas was, Santa emphasizes that Christmas is and should be a celebration of ChristÂs birth and that he is not responsible for the celebrationÂs commercialization.
