I know it’s a little early for this, but you know how they advertize Halloween on the 4th of July, Thanksgiving on Halloween, and Christmas on Thanksgiving. Well, the bun was curious about Christmas, and all the hoopla that comes with it. So, I gave him the low down. As he is a bit young for all the religious bubbub, I just stuck to the Santa Claus aspect of it all.
He was amazed that fat boy could scoot all over the world, jump down a few billion chimneys, and still make it back to the North Pole before breakfast.
He was equally amazed when I told him that the word “Christmas” is derived from the Latin word “xmas”, which, as we all know, means “from Wal-Mart”. The critter soaks up knowledge like a sponge.
Anyway, this all got him pretty wound up. Now, he is determined to see this Santa fellow this X-mas. I told him that you can’t see Santa, or it spoils the magic. What you see is his solution. He is going to cover his eyes, and just wave “Hi!”.
