It's been a long fight.
Years - nay, generations - have passed in the battle to free ourselves from The Santa Claus Thing. Terrible writers and clueless people have spent endless column inches and Twitter characters reinforcing the idea that the time in 1968 when Eagles fans threw snowballs at Santa Claus is relevant to all things Philly. And we, from local residents to the one-time governor, have attempted to clarify the context.
But it seems to have been all for nothing.
Santa Claus will visit CBP on Friday as part of Christmas in July. Really.— The700Level (@The700Level) July 25, 2014
