Lost Claus: Frosty Replaces Santa @ Y

Frosty: New gig?
Frosty replaces Santa
We are living in strange times! Santa Claus has been replaced in favor of Frosty The Snowman at the West (Greenwich) Village Y (YMCA).

It sounds like someone is afraid of Christmas - that's my opinion, here are some quotes....

John Rappaport, executive director of the McBurney YMCA, “It wasn’t replacing; it was transitioning...we realized that change is sometimes good, and that Frosty is a great winter character who would appeal to a broader number of kids.”

Catholic League’s William Donohue, “Christmas is not about Jack Frost; it’s not about snowmen...we’re not talking about some secular organization that has no religious roots. If they (YMCA) can’t celebrate Christmas, then they should check out. What a bunch of cowards.”

Facts: YMCA — an organization founded to spread Christian values in1844.

The decision to ditch Father Christmas came down from McBurney branch administration, not the Y’s Chicago headquarters.
Frosty will never replace Santa.
Santa has the toys...kids ain't stupid.
