Another Who's Afraid of Santa?

Here's another great Santa picture from the web site I linked up with a few posts down. This was one of 60+ photos submitted to a Chicago paper some years back about kids that were photographed while being scared out of their wits by Santa.

The best part of flipping through that album of pictures is seeing all the great Santas. Some are pathetic and some are unique and wonderful, like the one pictured here.

Secret Santa may be on his last run

This story on about a man who has played Secret Santa for decades and has just revealed his identity because this will probably be the last year he can journey beyond his Kansas City home and pass out money to people in need.

It's well worth a read - there's a warm, fuzzy factor about the goodness of people, and you might also want to add this man to your prayers and good thoughts. He has cancer and is now fighting for his own life.

Tis The Season

I absolutely love Christmas, even when the hustle and hassle get in the way of twinkle and joy. One of my favorite things is finding stores with Santas I haven't seen before. There are always a few, but this year it's like I hit the jackpot. Tonight I was browsing in a home decor store called Petals. I added them to my online shopping mall just because I liked their stuff so much.

Anyway, to make a long story short (I know, too late now!) I grabbed a few shots of Santas that I want to add to my personal collection of Santa figurines. This first one is the most unusual and maybe tomorrow I can remember to post my actual favorite.
Now - my gift to you, loyal reader, is the coupon link I found so you can get this one (or anything else on the site) for 10% off. I can't guarantee this link will work after December, so don't forget to use it soon if you're going to.

Who's afraid of Santa?

I found this web site where a photo gallery has been posted - apparently some years ago, a Chicago newspaper asked for family photos showing people afraid of Santa. This is number 7 in that series.

I chose it because of the look on Santa's face. Did the Santa's of your childhood have martini lunches? That's what it looks like to me.......

Here's the link to the gallery:
