UK schools ban Santa Claus volunteers

null

Teachers there have banned Saint Nick from coming into contact with kids during school events.

The Telegraph newspaper is reporting British schools cannot subject volunteers to criminal background checks, which includes those playing Father Christmas.

Because of that, many schools are choosing not to allow Kris Kringle to hoist children up on his lap to ask them about their Christmas wishes or even take pictures with him.
