REVEALED: Santa from Fox & Friends has dark career as Vampire Father Christmas and has joked about his 'appreciation for young girls' and making Jolly Old St. Nick a dirty old man

DailyMail
By Leslie Larson

EXCERPT:

A Santa Claus actor from North Hampton, New Hampshire makes a living bringing holiday cheer to children is coming under fire for his dark career as a vampire who sexualizes the grandfather figure and jokes about his appreciation for young girls.

With his round figure and snow-white beard, Sal Lizard is a dead ringer for Jolly Old St. Nicholas and with his new book, 'Being Santa Claus: What I Learned about the True Meaning of Christmas,' he has been called upon to speak on behalf of the Christmas icon.

But past comments he has made about his obsession with women and shocking photos of his Santa Vampire character are now coming to light and are causing alarm as many parents begin to wonder if the friendly man in the red suit can be trusted.

article-0-169F6014000005DC-541_634x330.j

Lizard, 57, appeared on Fox & Friends on Thursday as a spokesperson for the mall Santas the world over, as the conservative cable news channel investigates the war on Christmas.

In light of the effort to become more politically correct and inclusive during the holiday seasons, some have suggested that Santa shouldn't just represent the Christmas celebration of Jesus' birth but should keep it neutral by only saying 'Happy Holidays.'

But Lizard, dressed to the nines in his Santa suit and speaking on behalf of his friendly Santa character, rejected the notion of being ecumenical and said Santa should stand firm on Christmas.

'I can't find any reference where Santa has ever said anything other than 'Merry Christmas,'' Lizard told Fox & Friends co-hosts Gretchen Carlson and Steve Doocy, as part of their segment 'The War on Christmas.'



article-0-169F6CD2000005DC-180_634x425.j

He bemoaned the fact that many people feel that their Christmas parties don't need a Santa Claus anymore and pointed out the travesty that in Britain, where children aren't allowed to sit on the lap of a person dressed up as the character who comes to their school, little ones aren't allowed to cuddle with Santa because, as he told the co-hosts, it might 'give the wrong impression.'

But the former U.S. colonizers might have a point because Lizard's alarming activities during the rest of the year are not exactly kid friendly. 

The actor joked about how 'when you're an old man you appreciate young girls,' when he was interviewed at the Horror Hound Weekend, to promote films he has produced through his Laughing Zombie Productions, in 2011.

Most recently at the same horror fan convention this October, Lizard sat beside a scantily clad interviewer and joked about how he has transformed the lovable character from a kid-friendly grandfather to a 'dirty old man.'

'[Porn actor] Ron Jeremy said to me… 'You’re a f*cking genius,' Lizard said proudly in an interview.

'You've legitimized Santa being a dirty old man.’ And [Jeremy] said, "I always see you with these women, and you're biting their necks, and you're licking their necks, or you're bitin' them on the boob."'

Lizard's side projects are being produced through is production company and he has attracted a cult following on the horror fan circuit.

Despite his shocking comments and side gigs, Lizard has struck a much different tone in promoting his heartfelt Christmas book and showed his acting prowess on FOX as he blasted the 'political correctness' that is ruining the spirit of Christmas.

In an interview with FOX in early December, he reminded people of the importance of his role.

'Santa is there to help children remember. I tell kid three things to help them get what they want Listen to your parents and do your chores, listen to your teachers and do as well as you can in school and when you’re with your friends be kind to each other and if you try to do that all the time you’ll have a pretty good Christmas. Santa reminds children to be good.'

Representatives for Lizard, FOX News Channel and Gotham, who published Lizard's book this November, did not respond to a request for comment.

Seems to me we are really hurting the image of a beloved fictional character more and more each day.  What is next? Is this the next generation of the evolution of the character of Santa Claus?

I just sit here and shake my head at the craziness that some people obtain with their obsession to so called "fame"

As a side, when should the masses stand up for the sanctity of Santa Claus?

I saw this on a facebook page and thought how bad it was. He even wrote a Santa book called "Being Santa Claus"  and I really enjoyed reading it but I bought it before I knew about this. He did just suffer a stroke a week or so ago and he is in rehab. I hate to hear about his health problems but I do not agree with this spooky Santa stuff.

Here is the FB page   https://www.facebook.com/actorsal/photos

Nothing here that furthers the magic of the character.  Only crap that brings him down.

How utterly foolish of him.

I have 29 mutual Facebook Friends with this clown.  He takes pics of unsuspecting woman - posts them on his facebook page with "If you recognize the butt, please, tag that a$$"  (His Words and he used the correct version of that word.) This is not what you want to be associated with, Gentleman!  Especially on your Santa pages!  (And this is all on his public page!)

But, what really matters anymore?  People love this crap for some reason.

No Face book, no cell phone, no way of keeping up with others, and I do quite fine without it all. My parents are upset that I don't carry a cell phone or an I pad  or why am I not on all the quick to update sites, like a way to inform people ASAP right when I am doing this or that. The last thing I would want to see would be stuff like this.

God Bless us ALL, each and everyone of us.........................................

So very sad to see this and that is all I can say.


Peace & Love

I wish the media would not give people like this the spotlight they crave. I am not blaming them, and I understand why he get's coverage...I just wish he wouldn't. Now that he has chosen to revel in un-Santa like activities, I just want him to go away. :(

IMHO what is truly scary is the amount of "Santa" friends he has on his facebook account.  Why would anyone that takes their portrayal seriously want to be associated with him? by friending him on facebook somewhat decays that persons intent for the character.

This is one of the reasons I do not connect with Santas on Facebook and LinkedIn. If you are dressed as Santa Claus or have "Santa" in your name, I will not connect. I cannot take the chance of a client, potential client or employer looking at my profile to see who I am linked with. And if you think this does not happen, you are kidding yourself. It's one of the FIRST things employers look at. When I get a resume, I immediately look at the person's online presence. And yes, sometimes it results in the resume getting filed in the trash...

I have to agree with Mike on this one.  I get a lot of friend requests from Santas, but never accept them.  Well except for one, but it's a personal page and doesn't refer to his Santa portrayal.  I get requests from people I don't even know, who I guess assume that because I am a Santa I will automatically want to be associated with them.  Honestly, I want people to come to my page and see me, not other Santas. That would be bad for my business.

I believe that Santas should stick to wholesome activities and roles whether in or out of the red suit.  Another Santa that was highly regarded in some respects but which had controversial role portrayals was the late Victor Nevada.  Well known for his Santa school, the controversy surrounding him regarded his willingness to do "blue" routines during adult events where he appeared as Santa.  He would sing the song "Ambrose the Amber-Assed Antelope"  which was popular in Canada and which was a parody of "Rudolph the Red-Nosed reindeer."  Depending upon how the audience reacted, he would either go into his "R" rated routine or do a "PG" rated portrayal.  He did remain "G" rated during events where children were involved.

Victor also had certain personal habits that many of us avoid.

I went all over the place when writing this response. I hope I get my point across:

The way I see it, when we chose to do this, we took on a sacred trust.

We are representing "THE MAN, MYTH and LEGEND".

That means you have to be the epitome of Good.

It is our responsibility to be the best we can.

Think of the kids!? What kind of example is this!?

I know I'm new here, but this "Dirty Old Man/Monster" Crap is WRONG!  

He's on the Naughty List!

      Early Christmas display causes Monroe resident to call the city
      Ken Brown
      Fox19
      October 5, 2019
      EXCERPT:

       Christmas in September ... It’s not a holiday you hear celebrated often in the fall, but the Schmitt family Christmas celebration took place in Monroe in mid-September this year.
      “Every year we get together for Christmas and we’ve done this for as long as I’ve known,” Monroe resident David Schmitt said.
      Schmitt is a native of Wisconsin and most of his family still lives there. At 54 years old, Schmitt is the youngest of nine siblings who still try to get together to celebrate the Christmas holiday each year.
      “The drive to Wisconsin, where my family is from, it’s kind of hard to do in December,” Schmitt said. “So this year we said, ‘How about Christmas in Ohio?’ September, good driving weather ... nice weather ... I thought, ‘Perfect, everybody could come here for Christmas.’”
      “As everybody gets older we don’t get to see each other as often and living so far away from each other. It was really wonderful to just be able to have everyone together,” Donna Schmitt said.
      To celebrate the early holiday family gathering, Schmitt decorated his house with lights and ornaments three months ahead of the actual Christmas holiday. The early appearance of Christmas décor had at least one resident concerned enough to call the city of Monroe.
      “All you had to do was pull in the driveway and ask us and we would have told you... probably offered you a beverage,” Donna said.
      The city asked the Schmitt’s to remove some decorations that were too close to the road. No citations were issued and the family was given 60 days to remove any other decorations that were not in compliance with the city code.

    • If You Have the Post Christmas Blues You’re Doing Christmas Wrong
      The post-Christmas blues are a very real thing. Once the date of December 25th has passed the specter of December 26th is an ominous marker to many. It sits there on the calendar like the Ghost of Christmas Yet-to-Come. Silent and foreboding, the very image of the hooded Angel of Death it seems to be. And why not?

      Just about anywhere you look Americans are tossing trees to the curb, ripping down lights from rooftops and radio stations are flipping back to everyday music. What took months to build gets deconstructed in a matter of a couple of days.

    • Auld Lang Syne
      Every New Year’s Eve at the stroke of midnight, millions around the world traditionally gather together to sing the same song, “Auld Lang Syne”. As revilers mumble though the song’s versus, it often brings many of them to tears – regardless of the fact that most don’t know or even understand the lyrics. Confusion over the song’s lyrics is almost as much of a tradition as the song itself. Of course that rarely stops anyone from joining in.

    • Merry Christmas, My Friend
      Every year around this time, some variation of this poem is circulated online. The poem is generally credited to “a soldier stationed in Okinawa” or more recently since September 11, 2001, “a Marine stationed in Afghanistan”.

      However, the poem’s true author is Lance Corporal James M. Schmidt.

      Originally entitled, “Merry Christmas, My Friend”, Corporal Schmidt wrote the poem in 1986 while serving as Battalion Counter Sniper at the Marine Barracks 8th & I, in Washington, D.C.

      That day the poem was placed in the Marine Corps Gazette and distributed worldwide. Schmidt’s poem was later published in Leatherneck (Magazine of the Marines) in December 1991.

      EXCERPT:

      There is a new Christmas movie headed to theaters this Christmas about Charles Dickens about his creation of A Christmas Carol and Christmas purists hate it. Already.

      The film has a stellar cast that features the dreamy-eyed Dan Stevens as Dickens and the legendary Christopher Plummer as Scrooge. Here is the trailer:

      “This is a very presumptuous film,” said Christmas fan and would-be film critic, Arnold Yates, via MSN. “Charles Dickens was great but he certainly didn’t invent Christmas. Bah Humbug!”

      That sentiment is growing online as the preview makes the rounds.

      Seeking recognition is a downward path for a legend who performs his tasks in the veil of night.

      Recently, a fellow portrayer of Santa posted an image on Facebook that they constructed to look like a magazine cover with him on it and several story snips like many publications have on their covers.  You may have seen it if they are your friend on Facebook.  It looks okay.  The composition is good, but the rendering when uploading it to Facebook became distorted it and it is quite pixelated when you look at it from a development standpoint.
