Should Santa Be Rebranded?
Because patriarchy is so passe, new survey results show that Santa Claus might need a makeover. For years, Santa Claus has been portrayed as an overweight older white man with a large white beard.
While 72% percent of participants support no change to the current Santa, 28% say change is good, according to an article on wcvb.com. So what would (he) look like?
Poll results say a number of changes were suggested. Dressing in skinny jeans, wearing sneakers, getting tattooed, a new hair style, replacing his sleigh with a hoverboard or flying car, all made the list describing the would be modern Santa.
Some respondents even considered making Santa a woman or gender neutral. Poll participants ranged in age from 18-65 from both the U.S. and U.K.
