I ended up in the hospital for 3 days with pneumonia before thanksgiving. All I knew was that I felt terrible. Didn’t have a cough or congestion - just felt like crap. After a week and a half, I finally went to the ER. To say I was surprised at the diagnosis is an understatement.

From the "Santa Hat Icon in VS Code Creates 'SantaGate,' Locks Down Repository" item from the Daily CP newsletter:
The Santa Hat on vscode insiders and pushing of religion is very offensive to me,
How is Santa "pushing religion"? Santa as a symbol for crass consumerism, absolutely, but I don't know what religion promotes Santa or how Santa promotes any particular religion.
All my life in fact I've kept hearing from members of all religions commiserating the fact that Santa is twisting the entire message around "the Holidays". Sounds like another case of a sourpuss of a snowflake getting triggered and taking offensive only to be part of some movement.
Re: the "no religion" rule: My entire point is that this is not a religion issue.
His headwear is a facsimile of cosmic-ray screens worn by early canine-type astronauts in his world, and is worn to commemorate the first orbital flight which didn't explode and spread millions of pieces of dog-like animal throughout his planet's stratosphere -- so it's not religious at all.
The bobble on the end of the protective wear (not the top) provided a filter for the pseudo-canines' nose-like organs -- but Bob obviously can't wear it that way around, because his head is not alien-creature-almost-like-a-dog shaped.
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
It may stem from a precursor of Santa being a religious individual. The current depiction of Santa isn't supposed to be bound to any particular belief system, but being from the Southern US, I do see it happen often enough. I can see why it's misunderstood.
The National Geographic has a nice history of Santa article that's worth a look.
