In news stories about Santa events, should the impersonator be identified by his real name or as Santa?
Asked at Borders Books, Music and Cafe on December 10, 2002
“Santa because of the myth of Santa, the mystique of Santa Claus.”
“By his real name, I guess.”
“I think Santa Claus; it just sounds more proper with the full name. Santa’s too generic.”
“Santa Claus because it keeps the tradition alive.”
