So I ran across this posting a couple of weeks ago … it’s my own personal nightmare. In three and a half decades of wild living, I still haven’t managed to get within touching distance of Santa Claus.
(PS … while we don’t want Santa, the man, to come here, we will take his prizes.)

I tried desperately to not pass on that neurosis to my son–the best reason I could come up with when he wanted to visit Santa at the mall was that with so many kids sitting on his lap he was ‘unsanitary’–but that was to cover my own paralyzing fear that the jolly ol’ elf might grab me. Do you have any idea how embarrassing it is to explain to your child’s teacher why Santa is ‘unsanitary’?
