And To All A Good-Night

 

[You’ll Never Find My Christmas by Bishop Allen]

There are somethings that will never quite be the same and some that just dont change- Christmas is one of the above. Which is it for you?

Well more interestingly it seems to me to be something that will never quite change and I suppose I am alright with that. Im not quite fond of the though of going to Florida for Christmas (whoever came up with that idea: I do not mean to diss your attempt at escaping the cold weather, I just do not understand what you have against snowmen?)

Although it was brought up at the Christmas Eve Sermon at Sojourn

Community Church the other night, how much of a creep Santa really can seem…

I do agree with how he said it though. Just think about it! Santa Clause is coming.. to town.

This is meant to be such a ‘fun and dandy’ little song, exciting kids for what is hoping to be a Jolly Holiday with a obese man dressed in red, breaking into their house by sliding down their chimeny? Im just wondering, because this is the first time Its really jumped out at me..

I dont know about you, but it seems to me like Santa is trying to play God. What other stranger can put on a fake beard, and suddenly parents are okay with putting their children on his lap?

He sees you when your sleeping. He knows when your awake!

This is starting to sound religous..

He knows if you’ve been bad or good so be good for goodness sake! 

Can you not see the lists matching up a little bit? Our goodness decides our rewards! If this is the case I dont know why for all those years my parents were trying to tell me that I was good enough to earn a Hello Kitty pillow, A pink and yellow flowered sleeping bag and digital cameras, TV, PC games!

 

And you sure as heck shouldnt cry and be good for goodness sake OH you better watch out. Because Santa Clause is coming to town. 

Now this is a laughing matter. And no I am not serious, but please is this not all true? Maybe Im just a little too nudged into my own hipster generation of tea drinkers and vegan eaters, but I dont think my kids are going to learn that they deserve all those Christmas presents! What did I ever do as a kid that made me think I earned all those things? Well Santa sure aint Baby Jesus thats for sure and whether we all play God at one point or not, I think Id rather have a savior than a toy work shop-pedophile.

 

I finally gave myself what I really wanted this year too! A Nikon D5100! Heres a few samples of what is to come this year…
