The answer is no, absolutely not.
Well… sort of.

Argentina’s President Cristina Fern├â┬índez de Kirchner just took on Iair Tawil as a godson. True.
Thing is, Iair is a 21-year-old son of a rabbi, and now, Argentina’s first Jewish presidential godson, even though he’s not a baby and is at no risk of becoming a lycanthrope.
Apparently several news agencies, which we won’t be making fun of for reporting something so ridiculous, claimed that the president adopted a baby to keep it from becoming a werewolf.
In Argentina, the legend of the lobiz├â┬│n is similar to the standard werewolf legend. Basically, in the Argentinian legend, the seventh son of a seventh son was suuuuuper susceptible to becoming a werewolf.
What’s funny is this apparently has nothing to do with the Argentinian tradition of the seventh son (or daughter) of a family being eligible to become the President’s godchild. That tradition was apparently brought over by Russian immigrants in 1907.
President Fern├â┬índez is already godmother to around 700 children after taking office in 2007.
Regardless, it’s still pretty cute this 21-year-old man became her godson!
We love they’re all lighting a menorah too, seeing as how only Christian babies used to be eligible to become presidential godchildren!
We’re glad times are changing! And REALLY glad werewolves don’t exist. LOLz!
