Christmas Advent Blog Adventure: day 10

A response in avoidance of the Daily Post’s Writing Prompt

Welcome to Day 10 of the Great Advent Blog Adventure!  For today, the two topics I will explore are:

From the Christmas Postathon (  Have you sat on Santa’s lap?

And from the Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories (  Tell us about your family’s Christmas traditions and your memories of Christmases past.

I spoke to the traditions (or lack thereof, or to be more honest, a lack of my memory of any real Christmas “traditions” from childhood) yesterday.  As for Santa, I have been told I did sit on his lap, not necessarily happily when I was very young.  I mean, who makes little kids sit on a stranger’s lap and ask him for presents?  It’s a pretty weird tradition in our “be scared of everyone we don’t know” culture.  But like the traditions, I have forgotten any specific time when I may have sat on the lap of someone with a beard in a red furry suit.

Speaking of laps, here is Elliot on mine.

  1. Nothing better than a cat on a lap!!

  2. You know, there’s something seriously creepy about Santa. He’s okay in cartoons, to a point – but that whole breaking and entering through the chimney thing to steal food … . *shudder*

  3. The Santa thing really creeps me out. I once sat on Santa’s lap with my young daughter and he copped a feel. Gross. The opportunities for perverts to satisfy themselves in that position are just too much.
