My big thing about Santa is that it’s lying–and indeed making elaborate measures–to trick our children into believing something that is impossible. I hate giving Santa credit for the thoughtful or awesome gifts I buy.
But Portable North Pole (.tv) helped me make this tricky video.
And Child sat on my lap with a look on her face that was equal parts awe, incredulity, and utter terror that she’d find herself on the Naughty List.
It was totally amazing. I almost wept.
So this scrooge is coming around the bend of holiday cheer again. Though I think there’s probably a market for a non-Christian Santa.
Happy Winter Holidays, People.
