Santa and the crisis

Categories: World

Work for mom or dad. The money to pay the bills. Food or house. Maybe a pair of gloves and boots. More and more children asking Santa Claus for these things, rather than the usual toys. But Santa Claus was easier to fulfill those requests. With the constant rise of unemployment, deprivation of houses for debt and economic crisis, more and more children asking Santa Claus to solve their problems in the family. "These children understand the conditions and the situation, — says 69-year-old Richard Holden working Santa Claus in Gastonia, North Carolina. – If the family is not one child, the children understand that now they need to think about your brothers and sisters instead of asking for 10-12 toys for themselves."
