Santa Hates St. Louis

Posted By on Mon, Dec 27, 2010 at 12:00 PM

SANTA CLAUS IS COMING TO TOWN...WITH HIS WINDOWS ROLLED UP AND SLEIGH DOORS LOCKED.
  • Santa Claus is coming to town...with his windows rolled up and sleigh doors locked.

What's a city gotta do to catch a break these days? 


If you didn't find exactly what you wanted under the Chrisma-Hannu-Kwanz-Festi-Solsti-Non-Denominational-Winter-Holiday tree last weekend, well, The New Yorker magazine can tell you why: Santa, well, just doesn't feel too comfortable touching down in certain parts of St. Louis and its surrounding suburbs. 

"They just give me the creeps," he told one top elf.

Something we said? Or maybe just because we're the most dangerous city in America? Either way, you can read the rest of the magazine's "SantaLeaks" humor piece at their website.
