DOES CHRISTMAS — OR AT LEAST SANTA — TERRIFY YOU?

04 Dec

Friends:

This is a picture of one of our grandchildren (we have four) from last Christmas.  Isaac (Amy and Thom’s older child) was terrified by Santa!

SANTA AND TERRIFIED ISAACWhen you think about it, there are some things that ought to terrify us about Santa.  First of all, his name — SANTA!  That’s not all that far from SATAN, is it?

Second, he “sees you when you’re sleeping”???!?!!  What?  I don’t want some jolly, overweight, bearded guy watching me when I’m sleeping.  That’s just creepy.

Third, sometimes Santa doesn’t do such a great job.  I’m reminded of the child who wrote a letter to GOD which said, “God, you gave me a baby brother for Christmas.  I asked for a puppy!”  Sometimes Santa doesn’t give us what we ask for, does he?

Fourth, I’m not sure he really knows FirefoxScreenSnapz153who’s been good and who’s been bad.  I’ve gotten presents when I’m pretty certain I deserved a big old bag of coal.  And how ecologically friendly is coal, anyway?

Fifth, why hasn’t PETA gotten after him for reindeer-abuse?  I mean, he must push those critters pretty hard to get his presents out to every girl and boy in the world!  And what does he do with the really sloooowwww ones?  Hmmmm.  Reindeer venison stew?

Questions:

1.  What terrifies you about Santa?

2.  What terrifies you about Christmas?

    I’m terrified of a man who breaks in to my home to take my cookies. Sure, he leaves decent presents, but come on Santa, those are my cookies!
