You better watch out, you better not cry, because in just a few days Santa Claus is coming to a town near you. It’s a little creepy to think about some old white dude staring at you when you’re sleeping, but I’ll let it pass because come Christmas Eve he’s going to shimmy on down my chimney and leave mama the keys to a new Lexus. Well, at least I hope he does, I’ve sent him a ton of letters and I’ve been super good all year long.
Speaking of Santa, have you ever wondered where the whole Saint Nick thing came from? I have lots of questions. Who thought up a big jolly guy in red suit? What made him go with a sleigh pulled by eight tiny reindeer? Why not four regular sized reindeer? And why a chimney, logistically that’s a nightmare.

In the meantime, have a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
