While I was working as a store Santa, a boy asked me for an electric train set. “If you get your train,” I told him, “your dad is going to want to play with it too. Is that all right?”
The boy became very quiet. So, moving the conversation along,
I asked, “What else would you like Santa to bring you?”
He promptly replied, “Another train.”

mall of his choice.
I once bought my kid a set of batteries for Christmas with a note on it saying “Toys not included.”
Santa seems insulted that I put down that protective paper before sitting on his lap.
The office Christmas party
is a great opportunity to catch up
with people you haven’t seen for
Four-year-old to her two-year-old sister: “Let’s play Christmas. I’ll be Santa Claus and you can be a present and I’ll give you away.”
