Elves find a rat-eaten Santa, skull smashed. The victim was the city's only permanent, obsessively devote Santa, Kris Kringle, who lived above a toy shop.

The security guard, Marty Moussa, is identified as an Egyptian. He says that he's Coptic, and they celebrate Christmas. It is true that Copts observe Christmas, but they use the Orthodox calendar and many Orthodox Christians actually celebrate Christmas on January 7 rather than December 25. A minority of Copts, however, are Catholic, and they follow the Roman Catholic calendar. It is likely that Moussa is Coptic Catholic. See more
