Police forced to intervene in row over Santa outfit

Somebody thought it was the wrong colour.

WE CAN SURELY all agree that the colour of Santa’s outfit is a very, very important issue – and one that deserves proper consideration.

But perhaps forcing a police intervention is a little extreme. Officers in Sweden had to step in yesterday after a “foreign” visitor to a spa and conference centre grew angry because a visiting Santa Claus was wearing a grey instead of red costume.

No one was arrested during the incident in Vallsta, some 300 kilometers north of Stockholm.

But police said in a brief statement that the foreign guest grew agitated over the Santa outfit and argued with the centre’s staff. They did not say where the foreigner was from.
