Description When I was a kid growing up in New Zealand, this Santa used to be perched on the edge of the Farmers Department Store on Hobson Street. Now although I gather he's still referred to as the Farmers Santa, his perch these days is on the side of Whitcoull's Bookstore on one of the busiest intersections on Queen Street. At least he now gets more daily exposure during his seasonal outing as a result.His finger used to beckon, and his eye winked at expectent children like me, but alas, after his 2009 facelift, his finger and eye are now immobilized, depriving today's kids of the most memorable aspects of this Auckland icon.A Facebook group I came across while researching the history of the Farmers' Santa is called The Whitcoulls Creepy Santa with the suggestion that the wink and the beckoning finger suggests something sinister. Political correctness run wild, it would seem.
