WTF is with the Media and Christmas?

You know the holidays are coming when the unsavory news articles start pouring in, jarring us out of the magic and wonderment of Christmas. In the past the news has told us about the global argument over saying "Merry Christmas" versus "Happy Holidays," drunken santas stormed the city protesting commercialism, flashers dressed as St. Nick ran around London, fire and gas leaks prevented church services, and gifts were stolen...

Well this season has started off with a bang as well. To make the point, Pixie showed me this article.

Santas in Sydney, Australia have been instructed to avoid the traditional greeting of "ho ho ho" because it may be offensive to women.

Why don't the news outlets perpetuate peace on earth and goodwill towards mankind? This is just ridiculous; the media is spreading stupidity, ignorance, and making people really despise the holidays. If anyone knows of any news articles promoting Christmas cheer, send them my way. I don't want to be depressed this holiday season.
