There is no need to adjust your monitor. That really is Santa Claus dressed in green. Despite this being his busiest time of year, St. Nick found the time to make a wardrobe change for the day to show his support for environmental awareness.
“I want the Earth to be around forever so that there will always be good little girls and boys to visit and reward each year,” Santa explained as he posed for photos in his special green suit. “As you know, my sleigh travels around the entire world over the course of one night, and the carbon footprint is next to nothing. The only fuel my Reindeer need is Mrs. Claus’ hearty Christmas stew.”
Santa Claus spent the day filming public service announcements and Skyping classrooms across the world to talk to surprised school kids about Going Green. Tomorrow, the special green suit will be donated to the Smithsonian. Today, however, it’s garnering a ton of attention.
“I think it looks amazing,” Cupid told this Modern Philosopher. “Green is very slimming. Wait, don’t tell him I said that…”
“I think it’s a slap in the face of tradition,” the Easter Bunny grumbled. “It’s like the Yankees not wearing pinstripes. Santa can get people interested in saving the environment without having to resort to a stunt like this.”

What do you think, Modern Philosophers? What are you doing to live a little greener? Would you dye your toga green for the day? Do you think Santa should change it up and go with the green suit more often?
Remember, it doesn’t do any harm to the environment to send Deep Thoughts out into the atmosphere. Go Deep, my friends.
