Five Wishes For Santa

There are five things I’d like for Christmas, but I’m not planning on visiting the local mall to sit on some fat guy’s lap with my wish list in hand. A candy cane and a pat on the head isn’t going to give me the confidence I need to fulfill my Christmas wishes, either. I’ll [...]

Gift Cards: Yea or Nay?

giftcard1

As the holidays approach I’ve been thinking a lot about one subject. Gift cards. We all know that gift cards are wonderful presents for teachers or clients or nieces and nephews that we rarely see, but how do you feel about gift cards as stocking stuffers? As in “How did Santa know that you love [...]

An Open Letter to Elves

Cookies-for-Santa

Dear Elves, I’m sorry for addressing you all as one, but I don’t know you personally. Why is that? Why don’t I know more about you? Why is it that Santa gets all the glory and you just toil away in the background? I’ve been thinking a lot about you lately. I worry about you. [...]

How to Keep Your Child Believing in Santa

We all KNOW Santa is real, right? I mean, sure we all went through that phase when we were younger where we decided our parents had lied because we found the price tag still on our boombox. But those were foolish days. The thing is, all kids go through that doubting phase. And it’s difficult [...]

Over the past few weeks, I have noticed something about the Facebook status updates from my friends that have older children in regards to Santa. They’re in shock that their children are actually questioning his existence, even when said children are 10-12 years old. I will just come right out and say it: I don’t [...]

Yes, my friends, it’s Christmas Eve Eve Eve and I’d like to share one of my family’s traditions/maladies with you. It’s called “premature eGiftulation”. For as long as I can remember, my family’s holiday gift exchange has started on Christmas Eve Eve Eve and possibly even Christmas Eve Eve Eve Eve Eve Eve. I would [...]

A Liar’s Guide To Christmas

All hail the Prince of Lies!

‘Tis the season to be jolly! ‘Tis also the season of deception, subterfuge, and bald-faced lies. Giving your family a holiday full of surprises, warmth and wonderment involves lying like a cheap rug on the head of a used car salesman, so say goodbye to personal integrity and hello to A Liar’s Guide to Christmas. Parents: [...]

Santa’s Top 5 Pickup Lines

05-.jpg

Ever wonder why Santa’s so jolly? I hear it’s because he’s money with the ladies. I know what you’re thinking: Mrs. Claus. Even so, the rumors persist. (Plus, I hear she’s got an elf fetish.) And I, personally, think that there’s something to them. Life on the road’s gotta get kinda lonely. All the mall [...]

Dear Santa

Christmas

Dear Santa, First off, please do not tell my kids that I wrote you this letter because they are not allowed to write you letters. Well, that’s not true; they can write you letters, but they can not give you a list of things they want. They will grow up like I did, not knowing [...]

Santa Who?

Just in case. You know. In case he's real.

When I was a kid, my parents did the whole cookies-and-milk thing Christmas Eve and we wrote letters to Santa detailing the page of the Sears catalog where he could find our most coveted toy. While I was never big on the whole Santa deal (I figured it out when I was five… Santa and [...]
