What is it about taking our children to see Santa? I mean, really. Stop and think about it a second. Is there any other time of year that you walk up and hand your child to a perfect stranger in the mall? No! And you ESPECIALLY don't hand them over to creepy old men who are well overdue for a shave.

So why do we do it? And why are we surprised when our sweet children take one look at the white haired, fat, beady eyed old man and let out a blood curdling scream!? And why do we keep going back? Year after year, child after child, generation after generation. All in attempt to get a single bank breaking, over-priced picture of our children sitting on the laps of symbolized commercialism at it's best!


Sorry I'm not trying to be a grinch. I just think it's silly is all.

I must say, that video is pretty darn funny though!

    Good point. It's also ironic how much we complain as parents about how difficult it is to keep our kids believing in him. As if taking them to a drunk Santa in the mall with a polyester beard is going help...


    Tradition (driven by commercialism) is a powerful thing.
