11) Hungary: Parents demand Santa licensing

Ananova [UK]

"Angry parents in Hungary have formed an association to license local

Santas after complaining they weren't up to scratch. The Hungarian

Santa Foundation has teamed up with Santa Claus workers' unions to

create an exam with strict requirements for people who want to work as

Santas. And they plan to take legal action against any fake Father

Christmases who try and operate without a Santa licence." (12/06/07)
