Don't like a part of a story? Wait until the author's been dead for over a century, then publish the edit yourself...

Santa Claus is taking a step towards bettering his health and is putting his pipe away.

At least that's what publisher Grafton and Scratch have suggested after releasing a new edited version of "'Twas the Night Before Christmas."

In the classic story Moore spoke of Santa with the "stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth/And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath."

Well not any more. Santa has gone smokeless after author and former smoker Pamela McColl, spent $200,000 to delete that verse in her self-published version.
