image for Rising oil prices, global warming make Santa consider Christmas this year
Santa Claus waves back. Santa has been considering tightening the good list in an effort to save money on fuel prices.

Santa's workshop, North Pole - Local reports have notified The Spoof that Santa Claus will be very picky with children this year.

He says that fewer children will receive gifts this year. "It's a hard decision, but it's one that will benefit both sides" Claus was quoted. He has blamed rising oil prices for the cause of his decision as well as global warming. "My workshop has experienced dozens of accidents recently. The icy floors have been melting and making the slippery surface even more hazardous for elves"

Mrs. Claus, however, is against this decision. "I don't know why he comes up with these decisions. Children are not to blame for this" Mrs. Claus said. "I know he hasn't bought a new sled since his new powered sled. There still hasn't been a sled manufactured to run on other fuel." Santa Claus has most times resorted back to the reindeer powered sled, one that had been banned after talks with EU and US authorities agreed it was too dangerous. Once, a woman reported what she described as "falling doo-doo" on Christmas Eve.

Santa Claus however had said that he still had until December 23rd to revise his decision, but that he won't promise anything.
