Santa & Mrs. Claus - Lowcountry style

Santa & Mrs. Claus, Charleston, S.C.
There has been some discussion lately about what race Santa is. It started after Fox news broadcaster Megyn Kelly pronounced him white, and continued to Jon Stewart on the Daily Show. It made me very proud to find our Lowcountry Claus couple in place at Marion Square this morning, welcoming everyone with warm smiles and "ho, ho, ho's" on this drizzly day.

Not only are they a mixed race couple but the Mrs. is using a walker this year. Thank you Charleston!
