Quote-ables.

I decided I needed a Christmas quote for today (first official day of winter and 4 days 'til Christmas!) and of the many I found, this one made me laugh, so it won.

"I stopped believing in Santa Claus when I was six. Mother took me to see him in a department store and he asked for my autograph."- Shirley Temple

Plus this one was in keeping my recurring theme of "Santa's throne of lies." Don't let him fool you with his merry countenance, he is a holiday stealer!


My family (when there were 4 people in it...)used to "do" Santa...in the days of old... We do not any longer. For good reason. Lying to children for the sake of holiday cheer is pretty shady...

I don't really remember when we stopped, but I stopped "believing" in him long before I stopped pretending that he existed (I just never mentioned it because obviously I wanted the presents to keep coming).

The whole theory of a fat man coming down chimneys was unbelievable enough, but once I realized that not everyone had a chimney, that was the final straw. I was well aware of laws involving breaking and entering and I had a hard time believing that a jolly old man from the North was a lock breaker.

That and he and my parents always seemed to purchase the same wrapping paper....

My mom always wrapped 'Santa's' gifts in different wrapping paper. Why they would let the fat man get credit for excellent gifts...? Anyhoo, my kids are gonna love ME and not Santa :P

Haven't you ever seen The Santa Clause? He still gets in magically, with or without a chimney. ;) but a guy who commits a fellony to give you gifts...that's my kinda Santa haha.
