A man in Fayette County, Pennsylvania is protesting the commercialization of Christmas by hanging Santa from his front porch, but this story isn't about him.



A local news station interviewed residents of Farmington about the man's sacrificial Santa, and a woman named Barbara Carpenter gave the reporter a piece of her mind:

"I thought it was great. People need to stop blowing smoke up their kids' ass. They need to be taught the truth from young on: life sucks, deal with it. It's all about the money, and these businesses getting the money. People don't care that they have to scrape. If I'm buying gifts, I'm making somebody else richer, I'm going further in the ditch."

Bless you, Barbara Carpenter. Apparently the protestor has taken his Santa down, saying that he didn't mean to offend anybody, but hopefully he hears that at least one neighbor had his back.

For the 22nd year in a row, United Airlines is putting on a special "Fantasy Flights" program that flies ill children to the "North Pole" to meet Santa. This year, more than 5,000 children and their families get to go on a special plane ride to a makeshift North Pole to meet good ol' Saint Nick before his big night. 



"The kids really bring home the Spirit of Christmas for me. When I look into their eyes as they're chatting with Santa, it's often difficult to keep the tears from rolling down my face,” says Customer Service Rep and Fantasy Flights Santa David Tomb. “Sometimes they share a very personal thought or a wish that gives me just a hint of what their lives are like, what they're going through and what they're feeling at Christmas time. I'm just grateful that I can bring a little bit of joy into their lives."

When Santa Claus visited Middlesbrough's Cleveland Centre, he found one little girl who wasn't able to tell him what she wanted for Christmas. The girl's mother apologized, explaining that "she isn't able to speak very well." Saint Nick asked if the girl was albe to sign, and went on to have a heart-warming conversation with her in sign language. Even if you can't read what they're saying, the girl's joy is plain to see.



Now that's the spirit of Christmas!

In an event for Autism Speaks a very 'Caring Santa' spent time bonding with kids who have autism.  Events with a lot of people like the typical mall Santa meet and greet can be especially hard for children with autism. In this event, kids make appointments to avoid waiting in crowded lines. The Santa at this event makes sure to spend as much time is needed to interact with the kids.

This particular Santa in Charlotte, N.C. went the extra mile by laying on the ground just to connect with a nervous little boy. You can see more photos and the full story in the video below:

Note: "Spoiler Alert" should come BEFORE you actually spoil something.

Comedian Kitty Flanagan made that mistake by stating that Santa doesn't exist multiple times during a 6:30pm broadcast of Channel 10's "The Project" in Australia.

"Oh sorry — spoiler alert," she said. "If you have kids in the room, you should probably have covered their ears and gone 'la, la, la!' or something."

Sure, maybe not that many young kids who still believe in Santa are watching the evening news, but enough were to cause a whole slew of complaints online from angry parents.

The show then apologized on air and even had "Santa" on the show for an interview about gearing up for Christmas.

Whether you want to admit it or not, everybody poops - including Santa Claus - but that doesn't mean we need a visual.

In their latest viral ad, toilet spray maker Poo-Pourri imagines Christmas Eve in the worst way possible, with Santa on the John and his bathroom odor waking up three young British girls.

Poo puns aplenty here.
