Santa 2.0

by

Just in time for the Christmas decorations to start going up in stores, news came out last week that a new version of The Night Before Christmas is being released.

In this revised version, all references to Santa having a pipe or smoking have been removed, so that they do not offend modern children or encourage them to take up smoking.

The new book has met with criticism from a number of different groups, who object to modern revisions of classic literature to remove now offensive content.  A similar debate arose last year over news that a revised version of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn was going to be released.

Take a look at the article, and then let us know what you think.  Do you prefer your Santa old-school, or are you excited about the new Santa 2.0?
