Why does Santa make kids cry?

Thursday, December 2nd, 2010

This past weekend while walking through the mall, I heard this God awful scream straight from the pit of Hades.  As we rounded the corner there was the source of the noise, a 6 or 7 year old little boy crawling away from Santa Clause like his life depended on it.  That’s when the question came up from Hailey, “Why does Santa make kids cry?”   That’s a great question.  I told her that Santa probably told the kids that they were on the naughty list and that sent them into a fit of rage.  It’s all I could come up with on the spot.  So, if you were on Santa’s lap what would he tell you?  Are you on the naughty or nice list.  It’s not too late to make amends for 11 months of “iffy” behavior.  I’m gonna tell you, from experience, what has saved my behind on may occasions, a little something from Holland’s Jewelers.   This weekend is our annual Christmas open house where we will be open Friday night till 7 and Saturday till 4.  They’ll be lots of awesome food, drinks and jewelry give-a-ways. This year you can enter to win a Chamilia bead bracelet, Southern Gates sterling silver ring, Fossil watch (ladies or men’s) or our Mystery gift.   We’ll also be filling out wish list for that person in your life that can’t seem to pick out a gift without a little help.  You know who you are!!!   Can’t wait to see you all there!!    I’ll leave you with a few pictures of kids and Santa, you could cut the tension with a knife.
