Sarah Silverman Will Play the First Lady Santa Claus in Santa Inc.

EXCERPT:

Gender equity is coming to the North Pole. In a recent press release, HBO Max announced its new animated series, Santa Inc., an eight-episode production starring Sarah Silverman and Seth Rogen. Helmed by writer and showrunner Alexandra Rushfield (Shrill) and produced by Rogen’s Point Grey Pictures production company, it will star Sarah Silverman as the first lady elf to ever take on the mantle of Santa Claus. Yep, it’s time for girl Santa: when Santa (Seth Rogen)‘s successor gets a better job offer from, uh, Amazon, Christmas Eve is left without anyone to step into Santa Claus’s shoes.

So the highest-ranking elf in the North Pole, Silverman’s Candy, has the opportunity to make feminist history by delivering presents to all the little girls and boys. Beard optional. Each episode will be half an hour long, with no word given yet on when production will start or when the show will be planned to air. I’m guessing sometime around Christmas, though.

Why?

We don't need this type of entertainment. Yet another version of Bad Santa. 

Both Sarah and Seth base their comedy on ridiculing others and their traditions and beliefs.

Exactly! To me that isn't comedy, it's exploitation. (I've only had 3 cups of dark roast today, honestly.)

My Mrs. Claus says Sarah Silverman has a trash mouth and doesn't belong in a children's cartoon.

I know I'm late to the game (again), but I accidentally stumbled on this trash. When I saw a thumbnail, I mistakenly thought it was a show for children. Big mistake! Santa TJS was right. It's an assault on the Santa legend. Yet, it's more than that. It's complete and utter guttural trash. It has profanity and obscene (so-called) "humor" (for some folks, I suppose). Yet, it's not only an assault on the Santa legend; it's an assault on Christmas itself (and its Namesake). Of course, they don't care about that. Remember: the people who brought you this trash you never even ask for or wanted are the very same people who mock you and claim, "there is no war on Christmas" (and so forth).

No, "gender equity" (not even close to the same thing as equality) is definitely not coming to the North Pole. Santa Claus (based on St. Nicholas) is, well, a man. I'm not saying Mrs. Claus *couldn't* drive the sleigh, but that she probably really doesn't even want to. She's happy at being Mrs. Santa Claus (cooking and baking and looking after the reindeer and elves). Santa also probably baby's the sleigh like men baby their cars, trucks, and so forth (I think you know what I mean). He'd probably sweat bullets if anybody even approached the thing. Lastly, Santa Claus doesn't wear shoes (except maybe cobbler/workshop shoes). He wears boots (not that any of those prissy Hollywood types would know that).

The last thing we need is to "make feminist history" (whatever the heck *that* means). Mrs. Claus isn't a feminist and certainly should not be portrayed as being one. To quote an older thread: "My concern is the feminist Mrs. Claus who WILL NOT bake cookies, do crafts, take care of elves and reindeer, or even Santa.  And in this culture, those portrayals may someday be considered "unenlightened" and maybe rejected. Eventually, Ms. Claus may not even be female" (Cynthia Lewis, comment on "Mrs. Claus Going Solo," Jan. 28, 2015). The world (and the Santa world) needs more women (and not more feminists who think they can run roughshod over even something as "quaint" as the Santa Claus Legend).

PS: Don't get me started on the idea "Mrs. Claus may not even be female" (😒).

Silverman and Rogen (and SJW's more generally) are terrible people. They'd promote another iteration of Bad Santa without a question or even batting an eye. They're sick, sick people. Hollywood is a cesspool.

Indeed, "For the mouth speaks out of that which fills the heart." (Matt. 12:34b) . . . Not that Silverman and Rogan know such things (nor do they seem to care). Nicholas did. Those are just my two cents (maybe something to think about).

    • Published by William B. Gilley in 1821, “The Children’s Friend. Number III. A New-Year’s Present to the Little Ones from Five to Twelve”, is believed to be the first book published in America to include lithographic illustrations. This book includes a poem about “Santeclaus” along with eight colored illustrations.

      However, what makes this book significant is the poem and illustrations are thought to be the earliest known visual representation of Santa Claus in a sleigh pulled by reindeer. The poem also marks Santa’s first appearance on Christmas Day rather than December 6, the feast day of St. Nicholas.

       

      The Children’s Friend. Number III.
      A New-Year’s Present to the Little Ones from Five to Twelve
      by William B. Gilley, 1821


      Old Santeclaus with much delight
       His reindeer drives this frosty night.
       O’er chimney tops, and tracks of snow,
       To bring his yearly gifts to you.

       The steady friend of virtuous youth,
       The friend of duty, and of truth,
       Each Christmas eve he joys to come
       Where love and peace have made their home”


       Through many houses he has been,
       And various beds and stockings seen,
       Some, white as snow, and neatly mended,
       Others, that seem’d for pigs intended.

       Where e’er I found good girls or boys,
       That hated quarrels, strife and noise,
       Left an apple, or a tart,
       Or wooden gun, or painted cart;

       To some I gave a pretty doll,
       To some a peg-top, or a ball;
       No crackers, cannons, squibs, or rockets,
       To blow their eyes up, or their pockets.

       No drums to stun their Mother’s ear,
      Nor swords to make their sisters fear;
      But pretty books to store their mind
       With knowledge of each various kind.

       But where I found the children naughty,
       In manners rude, in temper haughty,
       Thankless to parents, liars, swearers,
       Boxers, or cheats, or base tale-bearers,


       I left a long, black, birchen rod,
       Such as the dread command of God
       Directs a Parent’s hand to use
       When virtue’s path his sons refuse

    • 10 Essentials to Being a Better Santa
      Here are some DOs and DON'Ts on being Santa

      Treat every child with respect.


      Never make fun of a child.


      Look into the child’s eyes when you speak to them.


      Speak softly. Children are sharing confidences with you.


      Acknowledge a child’s requests even if you don’t understand them.


      Never promise a toy request to avoid a child’s disappointment.


      Never promise a pet. Santas a toymaker and only animals produce pets.


      If the child can’t remember their wish list, assure them you know what they want.


      Never leave a child wondering if Santa heard their Christmas wishes.


      Every child worries about being on Santas “Naughty or Nice List”. Tell each child “You’re on the “Nice List.” It will bring happiness to everyone!

    • How do You Portray Santa?
      Portraying Santa is acting; it is a characterization of a mythical character.

      Most of us never think of ourselves as actors, but we are. Certain characteristics of Santa Claus have been handed down from one generation to another. The way we dress and conduct ourselves all follow an established pattern.

      Santa Claus is one of the most recognizable characters throughout the world. This came about from the advertising campaign of the Coke Cola Company and the creative painting genius, of Haddon Sundblom. Coke Cola was looking to increase winter sales of its soft drink and hired Sundblom to produce illustrations for prominent magazines. These illustrations appeared during the holiday season from the late 1930s into the early 1970s and set the standard for how Santa should look.

      This characterization of Santa with rosy cheeks, a white beard, handlebar mustache plus a red costume trimmed in white fur is the image most everyone has in their minds. Unconsciously people are going to judge you against that image. If your beard isn’t white or you have a soiled suit it will register with the onlooker.

      By the way, the majority of Sundblom's paintings depict Santa with a Brown Belt and Brown Boots. Not until his later illustrations did he change the color to Black for these items. Within the past few years many costume companies have offered the Coke Cola Suit and it has become very popular. You can tell it by the large buttons and absence of fur down the front of the jacket.

      No matter how you portray Santa, be it home visits, schools, churches, parades, corporate events, malls, hospitals we all make an entrance and an impression! The initial impression we make determines if our client will ask us to return.

      The 5 Second Rule

      I have a theory: When you enter the presence of your audience you have about 5 seconds to make people believe you are the real Santa.

      Yes, I said it and it is not meant to hurt anyone’s feelings. I do view many Facebook sites along with websites and posted photos. Frankly, many of these postings should have never been put on public display.

    • Auld Lang Syne
      Every New Year’s Eve at the stroke of midnight, millions around the world traditionally gather together to sing the same song, “Auld Lang Syne”. As revilers mumble though the song’s versus, it often brings many of them to tears – regardless of the fact that most don’t know or even understand the lyrics. Confusion over the song’s lyrics is almost as much of a tradition as the song itself. Of course that rarely stops anyone from joining in.
