SYDNEY, Australia —
He is an unlikely revolutionary, but this Christmas, Santa is a rebel with a claus.
He is having the last laugh on political correctness — and it's a great big fat belly laugh.
Santas across Sydney, Australia, are rebelling against attempts to ban their traditional greeting of "ho, ho, ho" in favor of "ha, ha, ha."
Recruitment firm Westaff — which supplies hundreds of Santas across the country — has told its trainees that the "ho ho ho" phrase could frighten children and could even be derogatory to women.
