I gave up my membership in the Advent Police Patrol years ago. Heck my Advent Candles are red, because purple doesn’t look good in our dining room. I’m not a stickler about the details. I like Santa under a palm tree. Of course I also do not like songs like “Dreaming of a White Christmas” and “Let it Snow”. I’d rather it didn’t. At least not here. My point here is that I am no “holiday buster”. I want people to have fun and enjoy the season.
Go ahead and stitch Santa onto Hawaiian Shirts. Make him into a porcelain cookie jar (we have one of those). I think it highly likely that St. Nicholas drank beer, but I don’t think this Brewmaster Santa does him justice.
Maybe I’m getting old but this bothers me more than “Gramma got run over by a reindeer” It’s just tacky.
Happy St. Nicholas Day. His feast day is December 6th. Today I will drink a beer in his memory and hope that no one buys “Drunk Santa”.
